The National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW), headquartered in Washington, DC, has tapped CIPH President and General Manager Ralph Suppa to take over as chair of its Association Executive Council (AEC).
“I am thrilled and honoured to be standing here as your 2019 chair,” Suppa said in a speech during his appointment, which took place during the association’s Winter Planning Committee. “I have been participating in the NAW AEC meetings for about 20 years and I am proud to call you all colleagues and friends.”
In his speech, Suppa expressed what NAW means to him–namely its efforts to offer career development opportunities, its research, and its advocacy at the local and national level.
NAW is composed of wholesaler-distributors and a federation of international, national, regional, state and local associations and their member firms, which total more than 30,000. www.ciph.com www.naw.org
