Executive Outlook

Pianos, a life. (Part1) 
Phil Bondi, RPT
PTG President

Hello, everyone.

The subject line above is the theme of this year’s annual PTG Convention & Institute in St. Louis. It is our 60th Anniversary, and we are being joined in St. Louis by our fellow technicians from the IAPBT. I had the pleasure of being part of the last IAPBT convention in Moscow, held in 2015. It will be good to see familiar faces and catch up with these fine people again this year.
