Well, the countdown until state conference has begun! ONLY 8 MORE DAYS TO GO!

Hopefully, you haven’t had too many April Fool’s Day pranks pulled on you today and you are all doing well. Now is the time to wrap up all your preparations, get your projects and other materials together, pack, and practice those last minute improvements to your presentations and speeches. It seems like just yesterday that I was writing to all of you to congratulate you on your outstanding regional conference work. Now here we are only a few days away from the 2014 PA-TSA State Conference at Seven Springs.

The PA-TSA State Officers have strived to make the 2014 State Conference the best ever! There will be raffles, a Minecraft Tournament, and a NASCAR Race against Cancer. Give one of these special events a try and see if you can take home bragging rights and some prizes. If you would like to learn more about other topics, attend a special interest session

Some of you are probably already looking forward to the 2014 National TSA Conference in June-July. With the Gaylord National Harbor being so close for many of us we are looking forward to seeing many PA-TSA members and advisors in Washington, DC for national conference. I hope you will expend a lot of effort into qualifying and then traveling to our nation’s capital to meet and compete against the best people that TSA has to offer from around our great country. Let’s have the biggest and best delegation in DC EVER!

PA-TSA students and advisors, thank you for all you do to make PA-TSA the best delegation in the country! Have fun, be safe, be leaders, and learn from all of your experiences. Please be courteous to all of the people who have worked so hard to make this a great conference—from the advisors, Board of Directors, bus drivers, conference staff, event coordinators, judges, state officers, Seven Springs staff, to the other students—everyone deserves your kindness and respect!

See you on April 9th at the 2014 PA-TSA State Conference!! Have a safe trip to the Seven Springs Resort and Conference Center in Champion, PA. I also wish you all an enjoyable, productive, and educational leadership conference.

Laura J. Hummell, 2013-2015 PA-TSA Board of Directors President
