The Philadelphia Area Promotional Products Association (PAPPA), the Michigan Promotional Professionals Association (MiPPA), the Upper Midwest Association of Promotional Professionals (UMAPP) and the Caribbean Advertising Specialties Association (CASA) have joined the redesigned SAGE Affiliate Program. The Affiliate Program is designed to give regional associations in the promotional products industry and their members special benefits from SAGE through access to business management products and services for members and the association.

“We are continually evaluating our affiliate program and searching for the best opportunities to support regional associations, which play such a vital role in our industry,” says Jarod Thorndike, director of strategic relations at SAGE. “We are pleased to find new ways to offer even more benefits and services to our affiliate associations and their members.”

SAGE offers members a choice of Business Suite Packages—special product bundles providing product research solutions on all major platforms, online product searching for clients, a custom website, virtual showrooms, and SAGE Total Access subscriptions.

Members can select a Business Suite Package of two, 10 or 25 user licenses depending on the number of users they need. As SAGE Affiliates, members of PAPPA, MiPPA, UMAPP, and CASA are eligible to receive special pricing on the Business Suite Packages as well as savings on their first SAGE Total Access subscription license. As part of the relationship, the regional association’s corporate offices will also use SAGE products and services to help manage the association.

In addition, all new distributor members subscribing to SAGE Total Access will receive a full membership to PPAI as part of the Power of Two program, in which SAGE and PPAI have entered a strategic alliance to provide the industry with the combined benefits of a PPAI membership and SAGE products and services.

PAPPA, MiPPA, UMAPP, and CASA members who are SAGE subscribers may contact SAGE to learn more about custom offerings, effective as of the next renewal. New association members who add SAGE services can be informed of their options by noting their specific association membership on their application.
