The 2020 SAAC Board Installation Dinner was held at the Pomona Valley Mining Company on February 6, 2020. The event drew more than 60 SAAC members and honored the numerous past presidents who were in attendance, highlighted the great work that continues to be accomplished by the Foundation for SAAC and formally welcomed the 2020 Board of Directors.
Executive Director Jennifer Bingham provided a year in review and paid tribute to all the accomplishments achieved with Immediate-Past President Rhett Todd at the helm. Todd graciously thanked his 2019 Board members for their unwavering support and continued dedication to SAAC and the members. He also expressed his great appreciation for all PPAI has brought to the partnership over the past year. Todd welcomed Tara Villanueva, MAS, as the incoming Board president, stating that he “couldn’t be leaving the Association in better hands.”
Villanueva presented a snapshot of what members can expect in the coming year by way of events, education and legislative advocacy for SAAC members. Members learned her mission during her tenure as president is to create a renewed sense of community within the SoCal promotional products industry.
The capstone of the evening was the welcoming of the 2020 SAAC Board of Directors. Jacob Dobsch, 2017 SAAC president, had the honor of installing the new Board with the “SAAC Oath of Office.”- Each board member pledged “to act honorably to protect the mission, vision and values of the Association.”
To end the evening, members toasted to the exciting year ahead with a special treat, The Dirty Cookie, generously provided by Logomark. To view more photos of the 2020 SAAC Board Installation Dinner, visit www.saac.net/photo-gallery.
