Quarterly Newsletter - October 2022


Hello everyone! I want to thank all of our Board and terrific distributor and supplier partner members for making the CAAMP Fall Showcase a huge success.

As I sit on the beach on the SC coast and the sun reflects off the ocean, I also reflect on the past couple of years and how our members and our Board of Directors have come together to bring life and excitement back to the Carolinas regional association. It has been an interesting time in all of our lives, and I appreciate the efforts of everyone involved with keeping up the CAAMPFires and the showcases. The recent fall show was a 2-day regional event that allowed for distributor salespeople and their clients to come through and meet with many of the best suppliers in the industry and discuss all of their best ideas for the 4th quarter. 

The feedback we received from all of the attendees was extremely positive and we're looking forward to the Spring Carolinas Connection show on March 29, 2023!

Please let us know if you have any questions about any of our upcoming events Check the website for dates and locations...

If you would like to volunteer on a committee and help serve your fellow CAAMP members, then please contact our Executive Director, Eliana Franklin at eliana@caampers.org.

We look forward to seeing you soon and thanks again for supporting CAAMP!

Daniel Jenne, 

CAAMP 2022 President
