FROM OUR 2021 PRESIDENT 


Dear CAAMP Members,

What profound and rapid change we have witnessed in our Industry and daily lives over the past several months! We are navigating an entirely new landscape, both personally and professionally. COVID, Social Distancing, and Masks were foreign concepts, and are now a part of everyday conversations. As your incoming President, I want to make the most of my time and service to CAAMP meaningful. I am dedicated and thankful to be part of a wonderful board of Directors that work diligently and are committed to achieve the goals and mission for our members.

Following on the footsteps of the past presidents, I have a great appreciation of the collective wisdom of our members that will help guide us as we move forward. I am looking forward to developing and supporting initiatives that inspire our members, encourage relationships, and provide for continued growth and development within our industry. Our educational initiatives will hopefully keep us on pace with the ever-changing times and the new way of doing business. We will continue with zoom CAAMPFIRES, Webinar Wednesdays, and look forward to CAAMP 2021 Trade Show event as allowed.

I would also like to take this time to encourage you to get involved by volunteering. We need you, your fresh ideas, experience, and energy! Our Goal is to make CAAMP the most successful regional association possible, for all our members and we can do this with your participation and teamwork.

On behalf of the board of directors, allow me to extend our sincere thank you to YOU our members, and we look forward to serving you in 2021.

Have a successful year,

Lisa Parker, MAS, MASI

Dear CAAMP Members,

I’m excited to confirm that effective January 1, 2021, BIC Graphic is changing our company name to Koozie Group! As a leading promotional products supplier, we are evolving as a company to better provide reliable and comprehensive solutions that help customers build their brand image and continue to work together to leave positive, lasting memories. It makes sense to change our name to best reflect this vision and mission. A new name separates us from our old parent company and aligns with our future business goals.

We will continue to operate as BIC Graphic through the end of 2020, until we officially make the switch to Koozie Group on January 1, 2021 but wanted to give you advanced notice of what will change.

EVERYTHING remains the same except the below changes will go into effect on January 1, 2021:

·       Our PPAI UPIC number will change to KOOZIEGP

·       Our “Bill/Remit to” name will change to Koozie Group

·       bicgraphic.com will change to kooziegroup.com

·       Industry portal product listings will be under Koozie Group; still searchable by their item #

·       All marketing collateral and communication will be branded Koozie Group and come from email addresses ending in @m.kooziegroup.com

As we get closer to January, updated email addresses will be provided. Until then, please continue to use our existing email addresses as outlined below:

·       General Customer Service questions: customerservice@bicgraphic.com

·       Send your Orders directly to: orders@bicgraphic.com

·       For 24-Hour Service orders: 24Hour@bicgraphic.com

·       For Random Samples & Collateral requests: samples@bicgraphic.com 

Keep an eye out for new Koozie Group branding, messaging and more exciting things to come!

You can learn more about how we are making a change for good and how we plan to keep the good going® at bicgraphic.com/US/change-for-good.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out! Our team is ready to help with any concerns and process transitions as we become Koozie Group. Please visit bicgraphic.com for updates throughout 2020.

All the best,

Harold Wood,Field Sales And RAC Board President
