Nominations are open through April 21 for the PPAI 2018 Distinguished Service Award. The award recognizes PPAI members who consistently contribute their skills and expertise toward the betterment of the Association through volunteer service and leadership. Joe Scott, vice president of Chanhassen, Minnesota-based distributor Scott & Associates, Inc., is the most recent recipient of the award, honored in January at The PPAI Expo.

Scott was recognized for the work he has done for the Association, the industry and his community, including service on the PPAI Board and committees, and his frequent contributions to PPAI and regional association education programs. The award also honored his volunteerism with the Upper Midwest Association of Promotional Professionals (UMAPP), his work advocating for the industry, speaking at high schools and marketing classes, and as a frequent writer for PPB, The Business Journals, Southwest Publications and American Business Journals.

The Association wants to hear about other member volunteers who have given back to the industry, whether they write articles for industry publications, present at educational events, or work on committees and task forces. Submit a nomination today for the 2018 PPAI Distinguished Service Award. Nominations close April 21, 2017.
