Presidential Post - January 15, 2012

Welcome to PDI’s New Website!

PDIowa.com is one of PDI's most important communication and member service tools, and over the past year, the association has invested significant financial and volunteer resources to fully overhaul and improve the site and its features. We've freshened the site's look, assimilated PDI social media resources into the experience, added important search functions and much more. Too, we've fully integrated PDI's member database into the site, meaning registration for events, contact information changes, receipt requests and more can be done in user-directed real time. As you review the site, we hope you'll notice more timely topical information delivery, better design and more efficient functionality. All this is not to suggest we don't have a bug or two to work out- we continue testing and appreciate any feedback you may have about the new site. And by 'we' I naturally mean 'Executive Director Lynn Harkin'.

Your login has been set up as your email address and your password is 1234567. Once you've logged into the site, you can click on 'My ACCT' and look for 'Login Credentials' in order to change your login/password.

I want to particularly thank Bruce Nuzum, Rob Williams, Shelly Turner, Darcy Watson and Lynn Harkin, who have managed this process from start to finish. This team has delivered to your association a fine product and contributed countless hours to see it through. Each of them deserves our gratitude.

Sincerely,

Brent Willett
President, Professional Developers of Iowa

Presidential Post - November 29,2012

Brentwillet2012 is winding down, and we are gearing up for the 2013 PDI year. There is still time to get involved and plan your role in your professional organization. Take a look at the committees on PDI and let us know on which you'd like to serve this year, be it Education, Legislative, Membership, Communications or Conference. Contact Executive Director Lynn Harkin at director@pdiowa.com to secure your spot.

You will soon receive information on 2013 sponsorship package opportunities. Please consider how your organization may wish to participate and promote your work through a PDI sponsorship in the coming year.

Please mark your calendar for February 27 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and plan to participate in Grow Iowa Day at the Iowa State Capitol. It's our first major PDI event in the new year. We look forward to seeing many of you in the Capitol rotunda to help maintain and improve our influence with our legislators.

Thank you for all the work you are doing to grow your communities and our great state.
