>>Look for Your Challenge Coin
 A "challenge coin" is a small coin or medallion (typically military), bearing an organization's insignia or emblem and carried by the organization's members. Traditionally, they are given to prove membership when challenged and to enhance morale. In addition, they are also collected by service or other members. In practice, challenge coins are normally presented by unit commanders in recognition of special achievement by a member of the unit. They are also exchanged in recognition of visits to an organization. SPFA is beginning a new tradition this year. Starting in 2014 each convention will have a custom Challenge Coin minted, struck with the SPFA logo on one side and the unique year's convention logo on the other. These are heavy, 1.75" diameter, 3.5mm thick coins. They will each have a custom number on the side making your coin special, and we will use that number for giveaways (like the registration TVs) instead of the usual tickets. There might be some other surprises you can win if you present your coin when challenged. These are truly collector's items and can be displayed to show all the years of attendance you will rack up. Made by GraywaterOps, a U.S. based, 100% veteran-owned company. If you want the coin, you need to be at the show. One per person, it'll be waiting for you in your convention bag.  
>>Critical Milestones and Information
1. Convention and hotel registration is open. The Convention HQ - the beautiful Renaissance by Marriott Palm Springs Convention Hotel and Resort - has been sold out since December. Don't fret! Check with the Renaissance to see if any reservations have been cancelled. If not, there are several other hotels in the area. Palm Springs is not a big city so you will still have easy access to the convention. The Palm Springs Courtyard Marriott is still accepting reservations, as is the Hilton Palm Springs and Extended Stay America. There are also other options if you search for hotels near the Palm Springs Convention Center.
2. SPFA will be offering the PCP certification Field Exams for Master Installer levels of insulation and roofing at the convention this year. Field Exams will take place January 25-27, and will be hosted at a local SPFA member contractor’s facility in Palm Springs. Transportation will be provided. If you have been thinking about getting your Master Installer Certification Field Exam completed, this is the best time, place and chance to do it. Maybe stick around for the convention too!
