Support The Renewal Of GSP
Legal authorization of the GSP program expired on July 31, 2013. The U.S. Congress is considering legislation that would extend the authorization of GSP beyond this date.

Protect The Promotional Products Industry
Help elected officials understand the value of the promotional products industry. All too often the industry is unnecessarily targeted as wasteful and abusive spending. Taking action will ensure that our message about this useful and dynamic industry is protected.

Advertising Expenditure
Before any tax reform proposal comes out, help us to educate Congress about the usefulness of the advertising deduction!

Independent Contractors and the Promotional Products Industry
Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio released a bill during the last Congress that would limit independent contractors in our industry. Act now to educate your elected officials about this industry and the importance of independent contractors to its success.
