Onward and Upward With the Power of One Tour

From Maine to Chesapeake and Long Island to Pittsburgh we have you covered! The Chesapeake Promotional Products Association (CPPA), New England Promotional Products Association (NEPPA), Philadelphia Area Promotional Products Association (PAPPA), Specialty Advertising Association of Greater New York (SAAGNY), and Three Rivers Advertising Specialty Association (TRASA) are proud to announce the first annual Power of “1” collaboration debuting January 2022.

CPPA NEPPA, PAPPA, SAAGNY, and TRASA, are all members of District 1, one of the seven districts within the Regional Association Council (RAC) which exists to foster communication and cooperation between the regional association community members and with Promotional Products Association International (PPAI). This group is excited to announce their first annual collaboration amongst all five regionals to be held January 24 -28, 2022. 

Each day of the week a different regional - and not to be missed educational component - will be included in the Power of “1” Tour. David Kennealey, President, NEPPA, added “I love the fact that the District 1 regional associations are working together to announce this week-long event earlier than ever before. This will allow our supplier partners to strategically plan their show calendars for 2022 to participate in this must-do event.”

“Collaboration is where great things take place. When the Presidents and Executive Directors of these regional associations connected and began brainstorming on how we could collectively bring value, as a group, to all our members, that’s where the magic happened. I am excited to show ALL the members what we have in store, so stay tuned. I am very proud to work with this solid group of professionals who bring a wealth of expertise and talent to the table.” noted Cliff Quicksell, MAS+, President, CPPA who described the process that brought this alliance together.

The first collaboration these outstanding group of leaders had was in 2020, a President Panel Discussion via webinar followed by a second President Panel discussion in 2021. Mark Colfer, PAPPA President, commented, “The District 1 Executive Directors and respective Association Presidents have been collaborating and wanting to plan something different for 2022. We are thrilled to announce The Power of “1”– 5 days of events showcasing valuable product and selling ideas, education, and fun. We look forward to seeing everyone throughout this week in January!” 

Monday, January 24 – NEPPA Winter Show - CT
Tuesday, January 25 – SAAGNY Winter Show - Suffern, NY
Wednesday, January 26 – PAPPA Winter Show - Springfield, PA
Thursday, January 27 – CPPA Winter Expo – Baltimore Area, MD
Friday, January 28 – TRASA Launch into 2022 Event (not a show) – Pittsburgh, PA

Collaboration was key for this group of regional association leaders. Tim Wingert, President, TRASA, added “What a great opportunity to join forces amongst our peers in promo. The “Power of “1”,” referring to District 1 (and a play on PPAI’s Power of Two), is a great way to provide value to all our members. Having our regional associations partnering with this common goal is exciting. I am looking forward to a renewed focus on education, networking, and relevant shows!” 

Rachel Levin, CAS, President, SAAGNY, added, “Our focus is our promo communities at large and bringing value to our members. With this idea leading the group, we will ensure a higher success rate of achieving our common goal. Collectively, we will gain much more traction and soar to that common goal.”
