Press release from the issuing company

On Friday, February 3, 2012, PIASC hosted a special Twenty-Five, Fifty, and Seventy-Five Year Membership Awards Breakfast for the pillars of the association! 

This special event was held at Tamayo Restaurant in Los Angeles. The room setting was beautiful: tables with white linen, colorful tulip center pieces and fruit plates that looked like a piece of art. 

As guests arrived, they were greeted with a Mimosa and relaxing classical guitar in the background. During this time, they enjoyed networking with their peers and exchanging stories about their companies as well as visiting with board members and PIASC staff. Then, around 9:30 a.m. members were invited to a delicious buffet breakfast, followed by the awards program. 

Ken Bittner, Chairman of the Board, personally congratulated Silver, Gold and Platinum awardees for their success in their businesses and thanked them for supporting the Association and its programs. Thereafter, Mr. Bittner asked Bob Lindgren, PIASC President, to come forward for the presentation of awards.
