What Members Think

I'm only in this business a little over two years and what took a couple of hours to do this time would have taken me 2 days in the past. Sourcing products and information takes up so much of my time when quoting.... I have developed some great relationships with some of the PPPC 's top suppliers and having the ability with the association's help to access so much more opens our world... to a broader client base... 
Distributor Jody Ennis, In The Box Media Promotions Inc. (PPPC 20100203)


ism's success is linked to our membership in PPPC. It has given us great visibility throughout Canada, and we've maximized on it. Our membership has also given us access to professional development, which is of great importance to my eyes - education is food for the brain. This is without counting the endless networking opportunities, and the priceless friendships that developed throughout the past 7 years.
