Congress’ upcoming August recess is an opportunity for industry members to meet with legislators and their staff to share with them the impact and importance of the promotional products industry not just nationwide, but in their own backyard.

While L.E.A.D. took the conversation to Washington, D.C. in May, PPAI is asking its members to bring the conversation back home. PPAI makes engagement easy and convenient by offering the tools necessary for meeting with elected officials and speaking on the industry’s behalf.

Town halls, frequently held by legislators during their August recess, are another valuable opportunity for industry members to learn about their representatives’ goals and ambitions and to hear from other leaders in the community. Elected officials’ town hall schedules are typically available through their websites or social media.
