Last fall the PPAI Board of Directors approved a change to the Association’s governance that transitions the ballot vote from an election to a selection process with one distributor and one supplier presented to PPAI members for an approval vote.

The two nominees, Dawn Olds, CAS, senior vice president of operations at distributor HALO Branded Solutions, and Kevin Walsh, president at supplier Showdown Displays, have been selected for their unique experience and balanced skillset of competencies that align with the board’s current focus and strategic plan. Each has also been extensively evaluated by the Leadership Advisory Council and the Elected Directors Nominating Committee. If approved by the membership, Olds and Walsh would begin their four years of board service following The PPAI Expo in January 2020.

Voting will begin on September 9. The designated contact from each PPAI member company will receive a ballot through PPAI’s third-party election vendor, Votenet, and be asked to approve the nominees. The results of the vote will be announced in PPB Newslink in early October. Read more about Olds and Walsh here.
