Melissa Hendrick, PPAI’s director of professional development and integrated media, has recently paid visits to a number of member companies around the country. These fact-to-face meetings have been valuable opportunities to learn more about PPAI’s members, the challenges they face and what they want from their Association. This past September, Hendrick travelled to Minnesota to visit the offices of Crystal D (UPIC: CRYSTALD) and 3M Promotional Markets (UPIC: POST-IT) in St. Paul and Fields Manufacturing (UPIC: FIELDS) in St. Cloud.
