    "Hey Buddy" Regional Association Challenge

    Many in the industry knew one of its most respected leaders, the late Francis “Fran” Ford, Jr., CAS and his memorable greeting, “Hey, Buddy!”. In remembrance of this industry icon, the Hey Buddy™ Bear was born. This adorable, fun loving teddy bear was designed with hearts on its paws, a “Hey Buddy™” imprinted t-shirt, and comes with a hang tag with an image of Fran and a special heartfelt message.

    CPPA is participating in a regional challenge that with every bear sold, we will donate the proceeds to the Promotional Products Education Foundation (PPEF) which provides college scholarships to promotional products industry employees and their children to support general studies and industry-related educational goals. 

    Help CPPA in this friendly regional challenge while also donating to a great cause.  The following options are available:

    • Purchase a bear and have it donated to a child on behalf of your generous donation
    • Purchase a bear and pick it up at our NoVA Showcase in Tysons, VA on 3/27/19
    • Purchase a bear and have it shipped to you
    • Donate a monetary amount to be given directly to PPEF

    Outsource Like a Supplier All-Star
    Presenter: Scott Nussinow
    (a webinar for Suppliers)

    Once considered only for large Suppliers, outsourcing back-office functions is now preferred for even Small-to-Medium sized companies. Outsourcing allows you to focus on proactive, sales-centric efforts, while a professional team manages these back-office functions:

    • artwork validation & manipulation (vectorizing, digitizing, redrawing, etc.)
    • proofing & approval process (prepare & send proofs, manage approvals, etc.)
    • order entry (in real-time, directly into your system)
    • printer file preparation (specific to your print processes)
    • mailbox & communications management with virtually seamless process integration

    Join industry veteran Scott A. Nussinow, MAS for this enlightening and educational presentation, featuring an overview of outsourcing, how it works, and how it can simplify your operations – and your life.
