CAAMPFIRES

Join your peers at our 
Lunch & Learn CAAMPfire Events


What are CAAMPFires?

A Lunch & Learn where a Supplier or Multi Line Rep treats distributor attendees to lunch – the only catch: Distributors get to hear an awesome presentation on the newest and top-selling products, pick up samples, catalogs and great ideas to take to their customers.

What does a CAAMPFire cost?

Nothing but your time!

*Non-Member Distributors - Your first Lunch and Learn is on us! 

*Distributor Members - All your Lunch and Learns are free of charge!


Who can attend a CAAMPFire?

Distributor Salespeople – you don’t have to be a member of CAAMP the first time, but after that we'll ask you to become one of us! CAAMP is made up of industry professionals, and we do what we can, when we can, to bring people together for networking and relationship-building.
