Sales and Ad Club

Welcome to the Peterborough Sales & Ad Club

With 70 years of history behind us, I am honoured to be serving as President of the Peterborough Sales & Ad Club for the 2016-2017 Season.  Just one short year ago, our club stood at a crossroads and our members chose to proceed on a path leading forward.  With time-honoured traditions firmly intact, we embraced new ideas and marched ahead creating new traditions of our own.  I would like to commend our outgoing President, Joe Grant, on an incredibly successful year in which we welcomed an unprecedented 18 new members to the club.  This growth is a testament to the value our members place on their involvement in this unique organization.

Our successes in 2015-2016 also indicate the return on investment being realized by the ongoing efforts of a very dedicated Board of Directors.  I would like to personally thank and acknowledge the contributions of Matt Temple who has served on the Board in every capacity imaginable for the last decade - his presence on the Board will be missed, but his laugh will continue to be heard loud and clear at future events.  A big thank you also goes out to Scott McDermott for his contributions to the club as a Director of the Board for the past four years.  I would also like to welcome our newest members of the Board for 2016-2017 - Steve James, Matt Stimpson and Paul Teleki.

With new members joining the club and Board, we look forward to a bright future that starts with a great year ahead.  I encourage our existing members to take ownership of your club this coming year - make suggestions, bring a guest, invite friends to join.  If you are considering joining our club for the first time, I encourage you to speak with existing members about their past experiences and the unmatched value that only this club can provide.  I look forward to meeting with all of you at the events we have planned for the coming year.

2016-2017 President
