The Promotional Products Association Midwest (PPAM), the Specialty Advertising Association of Greater New York (SAAGNY), the Arizona Promotional Products Association (AzPPA), and the Northwest Promotional Marketing Association (NWPMA) have joined the redesigned SAGE Affiliate Program. The Affiliate Program is designed to give regional associations in the promotional products industry and their members special benefits from SAGE through access to business management products and services for members and the association.

“We are continually evaluating our affiliate program and searching for the best opportunities to support regional associations, which play such a vital role in our industry,” says Jarod Thorndike, director of strategic relations at SAGE. “We are pleased to find new ways to offer even more benefits and services to our affiliate associations and their members.”

SAGE offers members a choice of Business Suite Packages—special product bundles providing product research solutions on all major platforms, online product searching for clients, a custom website, virtual showrooms, and SAGE Total Access subscriptions. The Total Access subscription consists of SAGE Online, the product research and business management solution; SAGE Web, the browser-based platform to access SAGE products from any device with web access; and SAGE Mobile, the full-featured mobile application for iOS and Android devices.

“We are thrilled to be able to bring relevant solutions like the SAGE Affiliate Program to our members,” says Jeff Kranz, board president of PPAM. “We’re confident that with the products and services from SAGE, our members will extend the success of promotional products in our region even further.”

Members can select a Business Suite Package of two, 10 or 25 user licenses depending on the number of users they need. As SAGE Affiliates, members of PPAM, SAAGNY, AzPPA and NWPMA are eligible to receive special pricing on the Business Suite Packages as well as savings on their first SAGE Total Access subscription license. As part of the relationship, the regional association’s corporate offices will also utilize SAGE products and services to help manage the association.

“We are pleased to have this opportunity to give our members premium tools as a product of our commitment to their success and the success of the industry,” says John R. B. Cudahy, CAS, board president of SAAGNY.

NWPMA President Dani Smith adds, “We’re confident that this relationship with SAGE will equip each of our members with valuable new resources and opportunities for business growth, and we look forward to seeing the benefits for members and our association.”

PPAM, SAAGNY, AzPPA and NWPMA members who are SAGE subscribers may contact SAGE to learn more about custom offerings, effective as of the next renewal. New association members who add SAGE services can be informed of their options by noting their specific association membership on their application.
