We can achieve great success by all of us working together to promote the advantages of being a PIA member. Our future is bright. I am very optimistic about our future and fully committed to the success of PIA.”

“One of the reasons we have prevailed is that we have an association that shares our values — and always has our backs,” Lee said. “I am proud to say I have been a PIA member for all of my professional life. It has been one of the best business decisions I have made.”
