Sixty Years and Counting
Paul Brown, RPT
It’s hard to believe that 60 years ago, the National Association of Piano Tuners and the American Society of Piano Technicians merged to form The Piano Technicians Guild. The process took years of negotiation and a certain amount of trust to ensure the new organization would endure the test of time.
Thirty-eight years ago, the International Association of Piano Builders and Technicians was formed. It has been our pleasure to be their host this year in St. Louis, and we look forward to the IAPBT convention in two years.
