Lots of Schedule Changes
Due to the unprecedented times we are now living through, we have had to cancel, postpone and reschedule a great many programs for April and May. The Home page lists and describes many of them, but you may find it easier to look at the updated schedule that is available at the link at the top of the right column on the home page or that can be accessed here. Be safe during these next several weeks!

PSA Portfolio Assessment - An Entrant's Guide
You may have read in the recent Filter that Ken Carlson recently learned that he was successful with a Gold level portfolio submission and has earned the GPSA distinction. Rick Cloran wrote the article which appears on page 65 of the Filter. The distinction that Ken has earned is a very big deal as there have only been 71 distinctions awarded worldwide and only 7 of those are on the Gold Level. Ken is the ONLY American to be recognized with the Gold distinction. Congratulations Ken!

Rick put together an Entrant's Guide to help those who may be interested in preparing and submitting a portfolio for a PSA Portfolio distinction. Visit Entrant's Guide (which is on the How to's page) to read about doing this.
