Next month, PPAI's board election opens for the class of 2024. The nominees are Dawn Olds, CAS, senior vice president of operations at distributor HALO Branded Solutions, and Kevin Walsh, president of supplier Showdown Displays. As previously announced, this year the Association is transitioning the ballot vote from an election process to a selection process by presenting one distributor and one supplier to the membership for an approval vote.
Both nominees recently took part in a "virtual town hall meeting" webinar facilitated by Brittany David, MAS, PPAI board chair, and Paul Bellantone, CAE, PPAI president and CEO. Olds and Walsh discussed what they think are the greatest challenges and opportunities facing the industry and PPAI, amongst other topics.
The webinar is available on-demand for PPAI members and associates and earns listeners one certification credit. Click here for the webinar. The PPAI board election opens September 9 and runs through September 30, with results available in early October.
