The Regional Association Council (RAC) has named Lisa Bibb, MAS, executive director for the Virginia Promotional Products Association (VAPPA) and the Georgia Association of Promotional Products Professionals (GAPPP), as recipient of the 2018 Donna Hall Memorial Grant.

The award presentation will be held during a celebration dinner at the 2018 RAC Leadership Development Workshop in Grapevine, Texas, on October 16.
"I am delighted to be named this year's grant recipient,” says Bibb. “The funds provided by the Donna Hall Memorial Grant will make it possible to pursue additional educational opportunities that will help me better serve both GAPPP and VAPPA. I am looking forward to the opportunity to participate in events that will bring more insight as to how we can better serve our regional members and bring more value to their membership. I would like to thank the Regional Association Council for making this grant available to regional executive directors.”
Created by the RAC Board in 2013, the Donna Hall Memorial Grant honors the memory of Donna Hall, who served as executive director of the Michigan Promotional Professionals Association (MiPPA). Funded by RAC, the Donna Hall Memorial Grant provides regional association executive directors the opportunity to advance their education and careers by providing financial support to attend education conferences and events.
