About Us

History

Our organization began on October 1, 1940, when four friends met at a diner near North Ave. and Harford Rd. for lunch. The group members had been informally exchanging leads for weeks and decided to create a formal networking organization to do so on a permanent basis. Our founding members were:

\

Marice E. Miller, Delvale Dairy

\

Glenn E. Hanna, Gates Rubber Co.

\

William G. Thomas, Roche & Hull

\

Edmund Starkey, Electric Refrigeration Co.

Our Mission

Since 1941 the primary objective of the Sales Promotion Association has been to institute and maintain a method of exchanging business information among its members; to create, foster and encourage a spirit of cooperation, business efficiency and ethical business and professional practices among its members.
