PCPA presents Member Salons on the 2nd Wednesday evening every month. The format is very informal with a guest presentation and a topic for discussion. Member salons are excellent networking sessions. Members can present their current projects, pitch workshops, and bring current work to review and discuss over BYOB refreshments. All PCPA members are invited and can bring one or two (non-member) guests. If you want to attend as a guest please contact Steve Szydlowski. Note that there is very limited seating available for guests.
