PPAI Visits Washington to Advocate for Industry
Paul Bellantone, president and CEO of Promotional Products Association International (PPAI), along with 70 other PPAI members, traveled to Washington, D.C., yesterday for PPAI's fifth-annual Legislative Education and Action Day (L.E.A.D.). Bellantone and the PPAI members will be meeting with members of Congress, educating them about promotional products, the needs of the industry and any legislative action that could affect it.
"Actions taken by Congress directly affect the promotional products industry's ability to conduct business and serve its customers," said Bellantone. "Our continued goal of working closely with lawmakers on behalf of promotional products businesses, our members and their customers is more important than ever in order to protect our industry's growth and economic competitiveness."
In an open letter to the industry, Bellantone called for others to join them in advocating the industry to Congress, providing a link to a web form via PPAI Law that can be used to contact your local congress member.
