    Happy Valentine’s Day, PHTers!


    We have a lot to look forward to in 2022, and I’m pleased to share it with you.


    Over the last couple of year, your PHT Board and volunteers brought you Pharma Talks and PHT Vendor Showcases which were well-attended. It was a great way to stay connected with you during the pandemic. I know I learned a lot from those who shared their knowledge and from the vendors who told us about their new offerings.


    Currently, we are planning an in-person conference for the fall! Like many of you, I‘m ready to get back to networking and meeting our vendors live and in person so this is great news. The contracts have not been signed yet, so I’ll leave it to our 2022 Annual Conference team to share the details with you as soon as we have them.


    Leading the effort to plan the annual conference is Caren Torrey, the 2022 Annual Conference Chair.  She’s assisted by:

    • Saundra Ketner, Program Committee Chair
    • Karen Mirabile, Venue and Logistics Chair
    • Janet Weiss, Vendor Relations Chair
    • and many other volunteers!


    Other PHT officers include:

    • Dani Johnson, Secretary
    • Tony Landolt, Awards Chair
    • Bridget Ryan, Communications Chair
    • Anna Rothman, Employment Chair
    • Sue Gleckner, Membership Chair
    • Keida Spurlock, Networking Chair


    Last week, Sue Gleckner shared with you an analysis showing where our members work. The data about our international members and the organizations our members work for was interesting, but the fact that PHT is led by 3% of our membership documents what that 3% of us knows – we need your help.


    PHT has opportunities for all members: we welcome those looking for their first opportunity to get involved and if you have association experience and are looking for your next challenge, we have opportunities for you too. Please reach out to me at to start the conversation!


    PHT strives to provide our members with excellent content and services. If you have an idea for a new service or a programming topic, please feel free to reach out.


    I look forward to hearing from you and to a great 2022!
