Since then, our now globally distributed community has grown to exceed 3500 individuals who represent some of the world’s greatest Brands, Banners, and talent in Retail and CPG Sales, Marketing, Finance, Supply Chain, Merchandising, and Information Technology focused on continuous improvement.
We are very proud of our many achievements over the past years, and recognize that our success is testament to our membership’s deep commitment to profitable and mutual growth, and meeting those critical needs for the highest quality education, practices, research, and focused events at POI. We are thankful to everyone who has contributed their time, energy and resources to help the POI achieve so many successes, both internally and externally, by supporting the Certified Collaborative Marketer, responding to research requests, networking at our leading events, as well as numerous peer to peer mentoring and outreach activities.
I look back on the success of POI with confidence: membership participation is at an all-time high, with 12 projects in the POI Incubator, and 5 focused events to serve our community’s growing needs.
We also recognize that the POI has become more than a trusted resource for our members; with the recent addition of Dale Hagemeyer, Partner, POI, it is also a leading authority for advice on process, skills, and technology to advise all members for their best success on their journey across trade marketing, retail execution, and collaborative promotion optimization.
This anniversary also gives us an occasion to formally acknowledge the loyalty and support of the hundreds of companies responsible for our success over the past decade. Through your commitment, the POI continues to be the standard-bearer for advancing Pricing, and promotion excellence. We appreciate your ongoing support by sharing our story with your friends, and co-workers, to attend a POI Summit, and consider becoming a member of the POI.
Join us in celebrating this important milestone throughout 2016, as we highlight numerous POI projects (including the current POI TPx and Retail Execution study), people who lead by example, and events that honor, and celebrate their tremendous accomplishments across teams and trading partners. Plan now to join us in Chicago, IL, Brussels, BE, Miami, FL, Saint Louis, MO, and Dallas TX for the next great steps, learnings, and accomplishments in the ever-changing world of CPG and Retail.
So many have expressed to me that they can’t imagine the world before the POI, yet it seems that the years have quickly flown by. With so much to look forward to in the coming decade, we appreciate your help in keeping the POI a relevant, vibrant, and active community, and we sincerely invite you to share your thoughts with us by dropping us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com
