Recently, PPAI hosted question-and-answer sessions with the candidates. Facilitated by Paul Bellantone, CAE, PPAI president and CEO, and PPAI Board Chair Steven Meyer, MAS, they offered Association members an opportunity to learn more about the candidates’ business background, association involvement, market experience and more. Listen to the distributor candidates’ webinar here, and to the supplier candidates’ webinar here.
“If you haven’t voted yet, I think you should take a minute to do so,” says Dan Jenne, CAS, immediate past president of the Regional Association Council. “The board of directors makes the important decisions that impact your Association. Read the candidate’s campaign materials and get to know them, then cast your vote. It’s important to tell your colleagues to vote as well. If you want to effect change, then vote. It’s that simple!”
October 4, the last day to make your voice heard, is fast approaching. Cast your vote today.
