We hope that everyone had a great summer!

The Pennsylvania AACT is looking forward to another great year of meetings and activities. In addition to the regular meetings throughout the year, we are planning on a tour of Asher’s Chocolate in the spring (more details to follow).

We would love to hear your ideas on topics for upcoming meetings,  or your suggestions for possible tours for the group.  If your company has a facility that you would like to offer for the group to tour, or perhaps a new and innovative technology that you would like to present, please let us know.

We’re also looking for folks who are interested in getting involved in the organization- it’s a great way to network in the industry!
