Dear Colleagues:

My fellow IPD Council members and I have put together a great program for this year's gathering of industrial PVF distributors and vendors in Boston. The Industrial Piping Division is proud of the benefits that we bring to the channel partners in our market, and I urge you to join us next month in Boston for the ASA Convention. In addition to the fine selection of PVF-specific programs, there are a variety of other excellent business and social events on the schedule.

With literally hundreds of PVF wholesalers and manufacturers in one place at one time, these discussions and gatherings are the highlight of the IPD year….and a networking opportunity you can't get anywhere else. I look forward to seeing you in Boston!

Michael Abeling, President, Consumers Pipe & Supply, Los Angeles, CA
