​​​On behalf of the PACT, we thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedules to participate in the Fall Workshop that was held in Harrisburg on October 12, 2018.  Feedback from the workshops were positive and constructive, which will help shape the agenda for the Spring Conference, which is scheduled for April 11-12, 2019 at the Hilton Harrisburg Hotel.  Special Thanks to Dr. David Tandberg, who was not only the guest speaker, but also made time to sign the book he was the lead author on, “The State Higher Education Executive Officer and the Public Good." If you were not able to attend the Workshops and interested in receiving a copy of Dr. Tandberg's book, we have a small quantity left. Contact Charissa Williams for a copy, 717-720-4125, cwilliams@passhe.edu.
