NOTE FROM OUR PRESIDENT
April showers bring May flowers. Or at least that is what they say. The last few weeks have been rainy indeed, but I have been able to endure it after such a successful Showcase last month. With the final numbers in, we had just over 500 attendees at this year’s Showcase. While we are used to seeing much larger numbers at our show, this is definitely a win after two years of a global pandemic.
The feedback from both suppliers and attendees is very positive. THANK YOU to our Show Chair, Tammy Hoth, and our Executive Director, Stacey Felice for all their hard work in making our Showcase a success. Our Showcase Committee spends many hours attending to the details involved with our Showcase and this year’s success was a result of all those hours and the care given by our committee.
THANK YOU to our amazing volunteers, as well. We could not provide this amazing member benefit to you and your clients without our volunteers and they deserve a big thanks. Our board hosts several events each year and help is always welcomed. If YOU would like to volunteer either at an event, or on our board, let us know. We are always looking for talented industry peeps to add to our amazing team.
Put up your umbrella. I promise sunny days are not far away - Happy Spring!
Dawn Ruler, President of PPAChicago
