Advocating for our industry in Washington, DC

from SPPA

Recently, SPPA participated in PPAI L.E.A.D. in Washington, D.C., and met with several congressional leaders from our region. SPPA Executive Director Mark Farrar and Kim Newell, president of World Wide Line, joined almost 70 others from across the nation to take the message of promotional products to Capital Hill. "I really felt like I made a difference," said Newell. "The Members of Congress were very receptive to our industry and our conversations were invaluable."

Farrar and Newell were able to meet with several members and staffers, including Rep. Steve Scalise, Rep. Martha Roby, and Rep. Bill Cassidy. House Speaker John Boehner made an unexpected visit and spoke to the group for about 15 minutes during dinner. Rep. Erik Paulsen from Minnesota was also honored by PPAI as the 2013 Legislator of the Year. more
