Our own Bruce J Felber, MAS, has been elected to the Promotional Products Association International (PPAI) Board of Directors for a four-year term beginning in January 2009. A membership of 7,500 global members elected Felber to the 19-member board in addition to another promotional consultant and two industry suppliers.

Did you know?
A 25-year veteran of the promotional products industry, Bruce has severed on many PPAI committees over the years. Most recently he was chairman of the Public Relations Committee. Bruce is a PPAI mentor and instructor for the Promotional Consultant Academy, a hands-on, highly experiential learning lab designed to raise the professional level of the promotional consultant. Locally, he was a two-time president of The Ohio Promotional Products Association and was inducted into their Hall of Fame in March 2008. Read more about Bruce.

Join me in congratulating Bruce on this huge honor!

Boo! Did I scare you?

Ok ghouls and goblins it is your time. In case anyone did not realize today, October 31, 2008, is Halloween. This means you have an excuse for dressing up and playing pranks. It is also the time to enjoy sweets (your dentist will love this) and look into innocent faces as they say “trick or treat”.

Do today’s kids even know what that means? Will anyone really give or get a trick? I would be curious if anyone could find some non-traditional approaches to this holiday.

If you are so inclined and would love to share photos or ghostly stories, please do so. Remember that there are many children roaming the streets tonight, so slow down and drive safely. This is a fun holiday, but let us all respect each other and their properties.
