The Specialty Advertising Association of California (SAAC), the regional voice of the promotional products industry in Southern California for more than 60 years, has announced the addition of Angela Taylor, marketing director at industry business services provider DistributorCentral, and Rhett Todd, managing partner of supplier PrintGear, as the newest members of the SAAC Foundation Board for 2020.

“The appointments of Rhett and Angela to our board continues to solidify the direction of the SAAC Foundation,” says SAAC Foundation Board President Michael Bistocchi. “With their hard work and dedication to the SAAC community and their previous experience as officers on the SAAC board, they will be a great asset to the Foundation. As we continue to grow, Taylor and Todd will work to create additional fundraising strategies for our college-bound constituents. They will help assure the board reaches its goal of awarding scholarships of $25,000 in 2020.”

The SAAC Foundation’s mission is to grant scholarships to family members of Specialty Advertising Association of California’s members to promote professional, academic or artistic achievement in post-secondary education.

“I am honored to be a part of the SAAC Foundation board next year,” says Todd. “I am looking forward to working with such a dynamic board in support of this incredible cause. The SAAC Foundation has done so much to further the mission of SAAC Foundation. I am excited to work with both SAAC and the SAAC Foundation in continuing this tradition.”

Taylor says, “I am very eager to continue to serve the SAAC community by joining the SAAC Foundation board. They are the most passionate group of volunteers and SAAC past presidents, and I’m happy to be one of them.”

Taylor and Todd are set to join a board that currently includes Board President Michael Bistocchi of Inkcups, Steve Parker of Starline, Beverly Walter of Brown & Bigelow, Craig Reese of Jack Nadel, Kate Alavez of PromoShop, and Jacque Martin of Brown & Bigelow.
