June 2022 PAPPA Newsletter
President's Message
PAPPA is getting ready for summer with opportunities for you to stay connected.
In July and August, we will be offering Summer Sip n Learns on Tuesdays at 9 a.m. These sessions will feature 4 suppliers in a zoom format discussing what’s new, what’s in stock, and what’s selling now.

July 1 is the early bird deadline to register for Promotions East. Why is this date important to PAPPA? If you plan to attend the show October 17-19 in Atlantic City, register by July 1 and PAPPA will get $15 for each distributor member who registers and attends. For registrations after July 1, PAPPA will receive $10 for each distributor member who registers and attends. Register early AND attend! Click on this link to register https://promotionseast.com/
Money earned from this incentive will go towards a fun member benefit at the 2023 winter show!

Committees are forming this summer for the fall shows. Are you interested in serving on the Allentown, Scranton or Plymouth Meeting show committees? Each show committee will meet weekly via zoom meetings starting in July. What would you do if you served on a committee? Help secure the giveaways & prizes, make phone calls, assist at the show, etc. Contact Patti Ward, PAPPA Executive Director, at 610-901-1048 if you are interested in serving on one of the committees.

We hope to see you virtually this summer with the Sip n Learns and in person at the fall shows on September 20, 21 & 22. (See below for show information)
Keep cool,

Staci Whittington, PAPPA President
