New Directors Join PPAChicago Board
Promotional Professionals Association of Chicago (PPAChicago) has welcomed Ben Turry of Leader Promotions, Dawn Ruler of Geiger and Matt Staff of Logomark, Inc. to its board of directors, effective January 1, 2017. In addition, Matt Gallegos of Staples, Colleen Krause of Summit Group and Bob Notter return to the board for a second term.
The incoming board joined the current PPAChicago board for a day of strategic planning on November 18 in Oak Brook, Illinois, facilitated by PPAI Member Engagement & Regional Relations Director Carol Gauger, MAS. Gauger led the group through an extensive analysis underlining the association’s strengths, revealing areas of opportunity and setting goals for the year ahead.
“PPAChicago has always been fortunate with a wealth of knowledge and experience from our volunteer board members,” says Matt Gallegos, 2017 board president. “With the addition of our newest directors, I am fully confident that we have all the right people and tools in place to better our association far past where it has been. That statement in it of itself is very bold, but with the mixture of newer younger board members, and some of our more experienced industry professionals, I don’t see how it can go any other way.”
