Awards Luncheon
In lieu of the Tuesday night Gala dinner, PBUS will host an Awards luncheon on Tuesday, February 26, 2019; keynote speaker to be announced in the near future!  Join us as we celebrate the men and women in the bail industry who have gone above and beyond to advocate for the critical role we play in the criminal justice system.  This ticket is part of the full and guest registration; additional tickets can be purchased when registering or HERE.

PBUS For Women Only (FWO) 
The FWO committee will be hosting another exciting luncheon at the winter conference on Monday, February 25, 2019. The luncheon IS NOT part of the registration fee but can be purchased with your registration or HEREMen who purchase a ticket may also attend the luncheon. Keynote speaker is Fabio Lanzoni, an Italian-born actor, fashion model and spokesperson. Born in Milan, Italy, Fabio had already established himself as a top model and Mr. Europe before arriving in America. During his first week in New York, he signed with the Ford modeling agency and quickly became their number one model. From there, an assignment to pose for a romance novel cover turned into 2,000 such assignments and his life changed dramatically.

Fabio developed and launched his "Healthy Planet Nutrition" line of whey protein nutritional supplements in 2012, which became a best-selling product for Whole Foods Markets across the Western U.S.  He also launched his signature line of women's apparel at Sam's Club division of Wal-Mart. He has been involved in many advertising campaigns, including "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!", "New Old Spice Guy Fabio," Super Bowl XL commercial for Nationwide Insurance and Oral-B Sensitive Advantage toothbrush. 

Fabio has been an ardent critic of the California leadership and criminal justice reform bills passed, that have taken the side of the criminals instead of law-abiding taxpayers. He was a victim of crime himself when thieves stole more than $200,000 worth of valuables from him. 

PBUS Poker Tournament
