Welcome to PCADV 2019!

Professional Care Alliance of the Delaware Valley’s 13th Annual Spring Luncheon takes place Wednesday, May 8, 2019 at Green Valley Country Club featuring keynote speaker Tom Burgoyne, “Best Friend of the Phillie Phanatic”. Tom Burgoyne has been performing as the Phillie Phanatic for thirty years. A St. Joseph’s Prep and Drexel University graduate, Tom first donned the Phanatic costume in 1989 after answering an anonymous want-ad in the Philadelphia Inquirer. Tom’s new book, Pheel the Love – How the Most Powerful Force in the Universe Builds Great Companies, shows how leaders can use Phanatic-style loving principles to generate customer and employee loyalty. Come join us for another wonderful annual PCADV event.

Professional Care Alliance of the Delaware Valley (PCADV) was started 12 years ago by four people dedicated to providing services and expertise that enhance seniors with lifestyle, finances, comfort, safety and transitional needs. Their vision was to network, bring educational programs and build relationships with professionals in the senior services industry. This non-profit organization has grown over the 12 years and we now have over 100 members, including corporate memberships. Our growth has been accomplished over the years because of the commitment of the Board of Directors and YOU, the members who support and participate in our meetings, luncheons, happy hours and networking.

I am happy to be the new President of PCADV and look forward to meeting each of you at our meetings, the second Wednesday of each month.I am privileged to work with a Board that is so committed to PCADV:

  • Vice President – Lou Cristinziani, Main Line Medical
  • Secretary – Paula Goy-Severino, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services
  • Treasurer – Linda Newsum, Personal Cash Services
  • Program Chair – Mimsye Katz, Katz Senior Services
  • Membership Chair – Peggie Heller, MAH Marketing Services
  • Board Member – Hope Kirschner, Abramson Center for Jewish Life

There are great programs planned that are educational, motivational, and entertaining.I’m sure you will also enjoy visiting the places that will be hosting meetings.I encourage you to please check the PCADV website (www.mypcadv.org) regularly to keep informed of happenings.
