A Welcome from the Chair of the USPLTA, Dan Bruce 
Welcome to the Inland Pacific Northwest for the 2013 USPLTA Annual Meeting! I don't have to travel far from home for this year's event – but am excited to share the treasures of my region with those of you who haven't been here before. This year our meeting is at the Davenport Hotel in Spokane, WA. In 2008, the USPLTA Annual Meeting was held at the Davenport Hotel and had such rave reviews, we didn't hesitate to come back for another visit. The venue is rich in history and the region is excited to host USPLTA members again. The International Marketing staff will be meeting prior to our event and will stay to give their insight on global issues. Special guests will discuss transportation, government affairs, research and domestic marketing.

Join us on Wednesday evening for our Welcome Reception and plan an evening out – enjoy one of the local cuisine. Friday the business meetings wrap up just before lunch. Stick around for the USPLTA golf tournament at MeadowWood Golf Course at Liberty Lake. For non–golf enthusiasts, there's a fun–paced guided winery tour. Friday night finishes up with a reception, casual banquet and golf awards event.

Register today – get your hotel rooms early and sign up for golf or wine. Come and hang out in Spokane with the US Pea & Lentil Trade Association members – catch up with old friends and make some new ones. Welcome to Spokane!!
