Hello -

I joined the PPA a month or so ago and I'm wondering what a good local organization would be for me to get my feet wet in competition?

I'm about 30 minutes south of Canton, OH

I checked the affiliates page and this group seems to be the closest, but there doesn't seem to be much going on:

Meanwhile, I'm studying for the CPP exam.

Thanks for ny help you can give me!

Hi Christine;

With the Mid-East Regional about to start in Ohio, I hope you are planning on going to the convention or at least walking around the print competition exhibit and the trade show. At the least you can then ask what sub state groups exist. I'd ask at the registration desk who to talk to.

Hi Christine,
I'm about 30 miles west of Canton. I belonged to ASPP for 5 years, they are not as big as they used to be, but they do offer some interesting topics especially if you are new. It's best to go to everything you can and learn as much as possible. There is also SONOPP up in the Cleveland area that is larger, but might be to far to drive.

Go to the PPO web site and they list the chapters affiliated with them I know there are one or 2 with in a 30-90 min drive of you that meet monthly.
