Edmonds, WA (May 11, 2009) Northwest Promotional Marketing Association (NWPMA) launches the new NWPro™ identity mark at the May 7, 2009 Promotional Professionals Networking Group. This new member benefit is designed to easily identify and distinguish individuals who are dedicated to increasing their level of professionalism and growing the promotional products industry.
Candace Sessions (Supplier-Travelchair) developed the program under NWPMA’s Membership Committee to engage promotional professionals and end users within the Pacific Northwest. “NWPro’s will belong to the most knowledgeable and trustworthy group of professionals in the promotional products industry. This will attract attention and start conversations,” Sessions said.
The NWPro™ designation is available to all NWPMA supplier and distributor members that meet industry requirements and sign an agreement relating to established guidelines, ethical standards and professionalism. “NWPro is very needed and is very good for us, I plan on using it to distinguish ourselves in our market,” said Hedy Barrett of distributorship Image & Design.
NWPro™ is being introduced and offered initially to attendees at the New Promotional Professionals Networking Group meetings. The first meeting held May 7th in Edmonds, Washington welcomed the first thirteen supplier and distributor NWPro™ members.
The next Promotional Professionals Networking Group meeting is scheduled in Burien, Washington at Mick Kelly’s Irish Pub. A Portland, Oregon location will be announced soon. For more information on the next meeting or to reserve your spot, space is limited, call Dan Singley at 425-488-8900 x3.
