Virtual PMC -- APG Opens Registration to Participate Online

I was excited to receive the following press release, as I appreciate it when organizations make their conference content available to those who are not able to travel and participate. I will definitely go to the APG PMC and participate in person whenever I can, as I thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to network with colleagues, but I also would want to benefit the the presentations in years that I am not able to travel. This year there are a variety of Virtual PMC options where you can sign up for the full conference, one day, or even one presentation. Read on for all the details.
