I was proud to represent the Chapter at the
National PDI a couple weeks ago. We won two
Awards for 2010. Our Communications Program
was recognized as the best program among
Chapters of our size and we achieved 5-Star
Status. The Communications Program includes
our newsletter, website and publicity for our
events. I'd like to personally thank Ms Diane
Powell who has overseen these areas for the last
few years. Thanks, Diane. A 5-Star rating is
achieved against standards established at Nat'l. In
2010, only 45 of the 123 active Chapters
throughout the world received this award.

NATIONAL PDI 2011 - AWESOME EVENT!
Minneapolis played host city to the national PDI on 30 May-June 3.
The host chapter and committee executed a dynamic event,
setting a program to the theme of Navigating Financial Excellence.
While attendees are not in an educational session, the city has
much to offer. With an alive, vibrant downtown located on the
Mississippi River, attendees will discover energy, excitement and
entertainment.
The Mall of America offers shopping, dining and entertainment
options for any time of the year and every member of the family.
Art lovers have plenty to see at the Minneapolis Art Institute,
Walker Art Center and the Frederick R. Weisman Art Museum,
which all house world-renowned collections. The theater scene is
thriving. With more than thirty theaters, Minneapolis has more
seats per capita than any U.S. city except New York. See a
Broadway show and enjoy dinner and live jazz at a fabulous
restaurant. Check out the Science Museum of Minnesota, where
visitors can produce their own video, or come face to face with a
shark at the UnderWater Adventures Aquarium. In summer, the
action moves outside. Known as "The City of Lakes," Minneapolis
has 22 lakes located within city limits and many more in the
surrounding area. In town, locals and tourists in-line skate or
stroll around Lake Calhoun, stopping for ice cream along the way.
Just outside of town, Fort Snelling State Park offers outdoor
recreational activities from hiking to biking and golf to boating.
Skyway-connected and located in the heart of the city, the
Minneapolis Convention Center will be the conference site.
