The Promotional Products Association of the Mid-South (PPAMS), the Sunbelt Promotional Products Association (SPPA), the Carolinas Association of Advertising and Marketing Professionals (CAAMP), and the Georgia Association of Promotional Product Professionals (GAPPP) have joined the redesigned SAGE Affiliate Program. The Affiliate Program is designed to give regional associations in the promotional products industry and their members special benefits from SAGE through access to business management products and services for members and the association.

SAGE offers members a choice of Business Suite Packages–special product bundles providing product research solutions on all major platforms, online product searching for clients, a custom website, virtual showrooms and SAGE Total Access subscriptions. The Total Access subscription consists of SAGE Online, the product research and business management solution; SAGE Web, the browser-based platform to access SAGE products from any device with web access; and SAGE Mobile, the full-featured mobile application for iOS and Android devices.

As SAGE Affiliates, members of PPAMS, SPPA, CAAMP and GAPPP are eligible to receive special pricing on the Business Suite Packages as well as savings on their first SAGE Total Access subscription license. As part of the relationship, PPAMS, SPPA, CAAMP and GAPPP corporate offices will also utilize SAGE products and services to help manage the association.

In addition, all new distributor members subscribing to SAGE Total Access will receive a full membership to PPAI as part of the Power of Two program, in which SAGE and PPAI have entered a strategic alliance to provide the industry with the combined benefits of a PPAI membership and SAGE products and services.

“In such a competitive industry, we know our members are looking for fresh ways to stay ahead of the curve,” says Bill Petrie, board president of PPAMS. “We’re excited to provide access to cutting-edge technology solutions by joining the redesigned SAGE Affiliate Program.”

Lisa Bibb, MAS, executive director of CAAMP, adds, “Our association is driven to enhance our members’ success, and we are eager to extend solutions to help make that vision a reality. The SAGE Affiliate Program is a unique way we can help our members reach new levels of accomplishment in their business.”

PPAMS, SPPA, CAAMP and GAPPP members who are SAGE subscribers should contact SAGE to learn more about custom offerings, effective as of the next renewal. New association members who add SAGE services can be informed of their options by noting their specific association membership on their application.
