Meeting: October 14, 2008

Our October meeting was be a special event, as we joined forces for the Inaugural PDMA St. Louis Chapter Meeting!

This was the first ever meeting of the PDMA St. Louis chapter, and those associated with the St. Louis Product Management Group were invited to attend this special joint meeting.
