Industry professionals are eager to get back to work as the country looks at reopening, and the regional associations will be there to support them. On May 13, a panel of industry members are taking part in a town hall-style discussion, hosted by the Michigan Promotional Products Association (MiPPA), on how to engage or re-engage with regional associations as the U.S. gets back to business.

The panel, which will be moderated by Mark Farrar, executive director of Promotional Products Association of the Mid-South, Gold Coast Promotional Products Association and Sunbelt Promotional Products Association, will include PPAI President and CEO Paul Bellantone, CAE; PPAI Director of Advocacy, Education & Member Engagement Anne Stone, CAE; MiPPA Executive Director Paul Kiewiet, MAS+; PPAChicago Board President Colleen Krause, CAE; and Regional Association Council President Harold Wood.

The discussion is expected to cover several subjects relevant to promotional products professionals, including the short-term and long-term impact COVID 19 has had on the industry, what resources are available from a national and regional level, opinions on how to plan for recovery, how regional trade shows can help the industry ease back into business and how to leverage the offerings of regional associations and what they include.
