Capitol Hill was teeming with more activity than usual this week as nearly 80 PPAI leaders, industry professionals and staff were in town to educate legislators from all 50 states on the most pressing issues facing the promotional products industry and small businesses in general.
Those who participated in PPAI’s ninth annual Legislative Education and Action Day (L.E.A.D.), which started on Wednesday and wraps up this afternoon, were focused on protecting the promotional products industry and preserving the interests of small businesses by emphasizing the value of promotional products and discussing key issues such as independent contractors, advertising expenditures, tariffs and the global value chain.
