I am pleased to report that the Plastics Pipe Institute just completed its 2001 semiannual meeting in Tucson, Ariz. Coming just 10 days after the tragic events of Sept. 11th, more than 110 people flew across the country, without incident, to attend this annual event.
Our decision not to cancel, while difficult at the time, proved to be the right one as evidenced by the great turnout. I encourage other associations and companies to get on with business as planned. Doing anything else will only be giving in to the fears that the terrorists hoped to create in our society, while further disrupting our bruised economy.
