Annual Awards Banquet – An evening you won’t want to miss…

Those attending the event will have the choice of three entrees this year: grilled top sirloin with brandied peppercorn sauce accompanied by white cheddar mashed potatoes; pecan- and herb-crusted salmon with Champagne beurre blanc accompanied by roasted rosemary potatoes; or vegetarian butternut squash ravioli with fresh spinach and sun dried tomato sauce.

Cost to attend the banquet is $35 for members or $40 for non-members. For the first time, organizations and groups will have the opportunity to guarantee a reserved table by purchasing an entire table for themselves. Tables, which seat up to 10 people, can be reserved for $325. Organizations buying a table must provide a full list of individuals attending, as well as their choice of entree, when the reservation is made.

Buying a table will be the only way to guarantee that larger groups will be able to sit together, and those who reserve tables will be seated in prime locations. All other seating will be on a first-come basis—so get there early.

Once again, IPC is working to make registering for the banquet even easier—just log on to the IPC website at and click on the link for the banquet. Not only can reservations be made online, but you can pay there as well (there will be a $2 surcharge per person for online payment.)

The deadline for reservations is Monday, April 23, and any cancellations made after Wednesday, April 25 will be charged the full price.
