In 1999, Prime Timers Worldwide had its convention in Washington, DC. At the time the DC chapter was pretty young (and pretty small to take on such a challenge), but one of its founding members, Bill Latham, headed up the very successful event. Ken South was asked to conduct a workshop at the convention and it became his introduction to Prime Timers. He has been the President of the DC chapter ever since. Given the location of the chapter, he is referred to (tongue in cheek) as "Mr. President".
The Prime Timers of Phoenix (PTOP) was founded in 1994. As of September 2015, we have 203 active members: 58 couples and 87 single men with membership growing every month. We are an extremely active, member oriented organization. Thanks to the efforts of a dedicated and focused Board of Directors, we offer our members an exciting and varied array of activities and events.
