Effective January 1, 2016, Shelley Bednarski, SE Region Manager with Chocolate Inn / Taylor & Grant / A La Carte will take on the elected role of President of Promotional Products Association of Florida (PPAF).
PPAF was founded in 1972 and governed by an 11-member volunteer Board of Directors. The Association is currently supported by nearly 500 distributors, suppliers, supplier representatives and marketing member firms and is one of the fastest growing regional associations in the industry.
Shelley has been active in the networking events over the past ten years but finds the most rewarding experiences have been since being on the PPAF Board of Directors. Shelley was elected Director at Large in 2013 and has been on the Executive Board as Treasurer for two years.
“PPAF offers a friendly environment where distributors, suppliers, and service providers can get to know each other and build those important business relationships. Tom Brokaw once said, “It's easy to make a buck. It's a lot tougher to make a difference.” Volunteering gives us each that opportunity to be a part of something so much bigger than ourselves. Being elected PPAF President, I get the distinct honor of working with the most dedicated individuals in our industry – those that put their time and expertise to work for the betterment of their industry peers and asking nothing in return. I am grateful to Chocolate Inn / Taylor & Grant for their continued support and encouragement.“
