Chapter News


We asked chapter member Sammy Ramos why he joined PCMA:

Sammy Ramos General Manager Lexington Ridge Inn Member since 1999

“PCMA has stayed cutting edge and relevant to the trends on what drives changes to our industry.  PCMA does a better job on the national level and keeps members up to date.   On the local level, the networking and connections I have made both on the vendor and supplier side are collaborative and supportive.  To have those relationships at your fingertips is integral, especially when firing up a new business. These connections form a sense of community, willing to help, and are an extremely valuable resource. “

“Mentorship is huge to me. Being a valued resource for individuals starting in our industry has been one of the many joys of giving back.  That along with the scholarships that PCMA makes available to new members to attend industry events, etc. is very important to those starting out with limited budgets.  I appreciate being a part of a community that share these same values.”
