Put People First! PA 10th Annual Membership Assembly 2022

If you have any issues registering, please contact Cassie or Jamie, contact info at bottom.

The Put People First! PA (PPF-PA) Membership Assembly is the largest yearly gathering of PPF-PA, open to brand new and experienced members. Join us in celebrating a BIG milestone: Put People First! PA's 10 year anniversary, from Friday, October 7th to Sunday, October 9th, 2022. We're coming together from across the state and the country to build community, celebrate and learn from our ten years, strategize, share art and culture and envision the year ahead!

This year Put People First! PA will be holding our 10th Annual Membership Assembly as a hybrid event, due to the COVID pandemic. Friday and Saturday, October 7 - 8, members will meet in person for smaller, Regional Membership Assemblies, and Sunday, October 9, everyone will virtually convene for the final day of the Assembly online. More details to come for fully virtual attendance for members and national partners who are not able to attend a regional Assembly in person.

Each regional Membership Assembly will provide free of charge meals, snacks, childcare, transportation and housing (if required for Friday night to Saturday), as well as masks and COVID tests to take before gathering in person. All in person participants will be expected to mask, except when eating or socially distanced outside. PPF-PA's COVID protocol will be sent to everyone who registers to review.

Exact locations for each in person Regional Assemby coming soon.  These three regional Membership Assemblies are:

  • Southeast PA convening in Montgomery County
  • South Central PA and Northeast PA convening in Schuylkill County
  • Southwest PA and Central Appalachia convening in Johnstown

Schedules may vary slightly for each region and all participants will receive an updated, regional schedule closer to the Membership Assembly.
