Dear Pama member,

I hope you are planning to attend the AVM Summit in Orlando, Fla., Nov. 21-22, 2013. PAMA is working closely with the event and you can see they have TWO very compelling tracks — one for Commercial MRO and the other geared at PAMA's core focus — that of Business Aviation. In fact I will be chairing the Biz Jet Track.

I am pleased to announce that PAMA has negotiated a special 20 percent off the published rates so REGISTER now via www.avm-summit.com/usa-booking and enter PAMA in the promo field to get the special discount.

I look forward to seeing you at the show so we can all learn from the program and generate some good contacts that should yield great business leads.

Regards,
Dale Forton
