A regional promotional professionals association

Promotional professionals seeking to grow their business and add to their industry knowledge join UMAPP.  Belonging to a regional association elevates a company and raises the bar of professionalism as well as creates an awareness of the promotional industry. 

When a company joins UMAPP, it is making a statement to its clients, the competition, it's staff and the industry that this company is serious about growth, professionalism and continuous education. Together, the members of UMAPP work to advocate for awareness by meeting with legislators in Washington, D.C. and on a local level to promote the industry of promotional products and create positive legislation. 

UMAPP membership provides a means for networking and social interactions with your peers, access to experienced professionals at trade shows who willingly share their knowledge and experience, and through volunteerism as an opportunity to learn new leadership skills.
