National PTAC Day

Friday, September 21, 2018

September 26th is the first annual National PTAC Day and it will be celebrated every fourth Wednesday of September moving forward.  The day is to celebrate the great things PTACs have done for businesses across the country from our network of 95 offices.

The Colorado PTAC is celebrating the day by hosting socials in two different locations; Colorado Springs and Aurora. Colorado PTAC wants to thank their workshop presenters, Subject Matter Experts, clients and community partners, so plan to attend.  There’s no agenda to follow, just a chance to get together to swap a couple of stories.
