RECEPTION & RIDGE SCHOLARSHIP RECOGNITION DINNER
Chairman, Ridge Global
Monday, May 8, 2017 | 6 p.m. Reception, 7 p.m. Dinner HERSHEY® Lodge, Hershey, PA Finish the day with an elegant dinner and reception at the HERSHEY® Lodge. Enjoy time to network with your peers and other PFMA members in a casual setting. Following drinks and hors d’oeuvres, join us for a delicious meal prepared by Hershey’s top-rated chefs with fine cocktails and wine pairing.
At dinner, Tom Ridge, chairman, Ridge Global, and former Pennsylvania Governor and Secretary of Homeland Security, will speak and acknowledge the 2017 Thomas R. and Laura Ridge Scholarship recipients. The scholarship, named for his parents, recognizes well-rounded students who excel in academics, extra-curricular activities and community service and plan to continue their education in the fall.
Following the tragic events of September 11, 2001, Tom Ridge left his position as governor of Pennsylvania to become the first Assistant to the President on Homeland Security, and on January 24, 2003, he became the first Secretary of Homeland Security. The creation of the country’s 15th department marked the largest reorganization of government since the Truman administration and another call of service for the former solider, congressman and governor. He served as the Commonwealth’s 43rd governor from 1995-2001.
Ridge is currently chairman of Ridge Global, a cyber-security solutions company, specializing in international security and risk management issues

Enjoy a relaxing breakfast while networking with PFMA members. Then, welcome our special invited guest Speaker Mike Turzai, Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
Turzai was unanimously elected Speaker of the House on January 6, 2015. He is now in his eighth term in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives. After winning a special election in 2001 for a seat in the 28th Legislative District, he represents communities in the North Hills of Allegheny County.
Speaker Turzai has made it clear that he does not believe Pennsylvania should be in the adult beverage sales business. He led the historic passage of House Bill 790, the first measure in the history of Pennsylvania to remove the monopoly and create a free market so consumers could enjoy choices and conveniences of the 21st century.
Join us to hear what further changes the Speaker sees for this legislative session.
This year, the PFMA Conference will offer three concurrent educational tracks to provide attendees and their teams with more learning opportunities. The three tracks are: Family Business and Entrepreneurship, Legislative and Technology.
