PPAI’s election for the board class of 2024, which opened September 9, comes to an end on September 30. In a change this year, one distributor and one supplier are being presented to the membership for an approval vote. The nominees are Dawn Olds, CAS, senior vice president of operations at distributor HALO Branded Solutions, and Kevin Walsh, president of supplier Showdown Displays.

In a virtual town-hall-type meeting webinar, facilitated by Brittany David, MAS, PPAI board chair, and Paul Bellantone, CAE, PPAI president and CEO, Olds and Walsh discussed their thoughts on the greatest challenges and opportunities facing the industry and PPAI, among other topics. The webinar is available on-demand for PPAI members and associates and earns listeners one certification credit.

Learn more about each candidate, including their skills, career and volunteerism backgrounds, and their views on PPAI’s role in the industry here.

Each PPAI member company has a voice in the direction of the Association, and PPAI bylaws require board nominees to be ratified by the membership. A paper ballot has been mailed to every member company’s voting contact; voting can also be completed online. Election results will be announced in early October.
