Carolinas Chapter Announces Three-Year Sponsorship with PAPC

Charlotte, NC – The Carolinas Chapter of the Club Managers Association of America (CMAA) is pleased to announce the Purchasing Association of Private Clubs’ (PAPC) renewed commitment to the Carolinas Sponsorship Program with a three-year agreement as a Silver Sponsor, valued at $10,000/year.

PAPC began their relationship with the Carolinas in 2012 as a Partner and increased their level of support to be a Silver Sponsor in 2013. Their renewed three-year commitment speaks volumes to the partnership that has been formed over the years and to PAPC’s unwavering support of the Carolinas Chapter, the Carolinas Club Foundation (CCF) and their collective efforts to deliver outstanding education, networking opportunities, and services to Chapter members.

“We are very excited to hear about PAPC’s continued sponsorship of the Carolinas Chapter,” said Zak Haylash, Assistant General Manager at Carolina Yacht Club in Charleston, SC. “PAPC makes purchasing easy in every facet of the club industry. From food, to banquet equipment, all the way down to a 60-watt lightbulb, PAPC has helped save our club money along the way.”
Susan Spalding, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at PAPC, echoed Zak’s excitement by stating, “PAPC is very excited about renewing our Sponsorship with the Carolinas Chapter CMAA for the next three years. With a new sales team and new products and services, PAPC is committed to bringing exceptional service and product knowledge to Chapter members.”

Chapter members can meet the new sales team at the Winter Education Program, PAPC’s sponsored Chapter event, on Monday, January 25, 2016, at Colleton River Plantation Club in Bluffton, SC.

Additionally, PAPC has sponsored the Chapter’s hospitality suite at CMAA’s World Conference for the past seven years and will again this year on Tuesday, February 23, 2016, in San Diego, CA.
