I must admit, I had never heard of League City, Texas before seeing it on the PBT meeting schedule. League City sits astride the Gulf of Mexico about 30 miles south of Houston.
Anyone who attends PBT meetings know it’s going to be meticulously organized and well attended. The 2012 annual meeting was moved to League City after a string of Fall meetings in San Antonio. One of the basic planning challenges for any association is selecting a meeting site that will inspire attendance. Texas is one of those states where flying is a must for some of the meeting locations. For instance, it’s an eleven hour drive from El Paso to League City.
PBT rolls allot into their annual meeting including The PBT Golf Classic and Auction benefiting The Texas Bail PAC, legislative meeting, board of directors meeting, continuing education and general meeting. The legislative committee meeting was particularly active as we approach the legislative session; the Texas Legislature only meets every two years.
John McCluskey, Melinda Webb, Glenn Meeker and Camille Hodnett were all recipients of annual awards. One of the unique items sold at auction was Glen Strickland’s Panama hat signed by Blue Angel pilots and crew members who were also staying at the South Shore Harbour Resort.
