Professional Paddlesport Association

Mike left for Washington, D.C. yesterday morning for a PPA meeting.  He is currently President of the Professional Paddlesport Association that is headquartered in D.C.  The organization has members from the United States and abroad who are involved in the paddlesport industry.  It not only includes canoe outfitters, rafting operations and other watersport activities, but also the manufacturers of products used by these businesses.  They work together on a number of projects each year and work closely with the American Canoe Association and other outdoor associations.  It is a great way to meet others in the industry and learn about their paddlesport businesses.
