From January 30 to February 2, PIJAC and hundreds of other leading groups and individuals will gather at the second annual Pet Industry Leadership Conference (PILC) in Laguna Beach, California, to arm the pet industry for a successful 2017.
Every year, the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council (PIJAC) hosts the Top2Top Conference—an opportunity for pet industry executives, entrepreneurs, elected officials, journalists and advocates to come together, network, and discuss a myriad of issues affecting the pet industry nationwide.
The annual Top2Top conference is sure to warm you from the inside out, with star-studded speaker lineup, motivational presentations, a luxury spa and award-winning golf course.
With the 2014 midterm elections in the rear-view mirror, it's time to look ahead and prepare for how these elections may impact animal welfare, pet-choice, responsible pet ownership, and responsible pet businesses across the country in the coming months.
I was lucky enough to spend one day recently visiting longtime PIJAC member Segrest Farms, one of the world's largest and most successful distributors of wholesale ornamental fish.
Since stepping into my new role earlier this month, I have been traveling around the country meeting with PIJAC members and others in the pet business community, including visits to pet shops and commercial breeders. I am listening carefully to your input, deepening my understanding of the critical issues facing us and building new relationships.
