I believe the greatest value derived from membership in the FPDA is the ability to network with fellow distributors and manufacturers across North America. I have been able to take relationships started at conferences over the years and grow them into business opportunities and personal friendships. The amount of opportunities and friendships I have enjoyed over time would not have been possible on this scale without my involvement in the FPDA.
