PPAI Announces Membership Milestone
PPAI, Irving, Texas, membership has surpassed 7,500 member companies, announcing the highest in the history of the nonprofit trade association that serves the promotional products industry. This total represents more than 500 new members since November 2005, and a 14 percent increase since May 2005.
“Everything we do is designed to help our members grow their businesses,” said Michele Packard-Milam, director of membership development. “Our flagship trade show, The PPAI Expo 2007, is loaded with business building products and educational opportunities; our research makes it easier for our members to identify new markets; and our Nova credit card processing system allows customers to do business with our members seamlessly.”
PPAI membership benefits include education and certification, research, the PPAI Bookstore and Resource Center, access to health-care coverage, a free electronic membership directory, subscriptions to PPB magazine, and significant discounts with Federal Express, Nova and much more. Membership dues are based on the company’s size.
“When you combine all of these business building offerings with our other valuable programs including access to health-care, artwork digitizing and FedEx shipping discounts, the value of membership becomes obvious,” noted Packard-Milam.
