Many PDA Education courses depend on the immense generosity of suppliers, who donate or loan both equipment and services to make these educational offerings possible. To demonstrate PDA’s appreciation, PDA unveiled a special wall with plaques recognizing these contributions in June.
Work on the wall began last year. Kimberly McIntire, Manager of Education, took the lead in executing the project, and David Talmage, Vice President of Education, contributed significantly as well. The wall features large plaques with company logos for the five biggest suppliers. The names of the remaining suppliers are displayed below.

Recognition involves a variety of factors, such as need for the products supplied, value of the donation or loan, commitment to the task and reliability.
The wall can be seen inside the main entrance of PDA’s Training and Research Institute (TRI) in Bethesda, Md.
