On March 23, the JPMA team took to the road to visit with members in the Boston area. Executive Director Kelly Mariotti, Director of Regulatory & Legislative Affairs Mark Fellin and Director of Marketing, Lauren Pfeiffer started the road trip with a visit to the Summer Infant headquarters in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, where they met with company leaders in the C-Suite, Compliance, Product Development and Marketing. This visit aligned with JPMA’s goal to build relationships with multiple individuals within the member company organizations, and to better understand their wants and needs.
That evening, JPMA member companies in the area joined in fellowship and libations in the Foxborough area for an informal gathering that allowed company leaders and others to build lasting relationships. Members connected, discussed ideas with each other and association team members and caught up on recent developments.
“Being new to the industry, I was thrilled with this intimate meet-up format that made me feel as if I was having cocktails at a friend's house,” said Bob Land, Dorel Juvenile Group Vice President of Consumer Engagement. “The JPMA team did a wonderful job listening to our needs as members and less than 24 hours later, we're already working on action items.”
