OFFERS UNIVERSITY OF INNOVATIVE DISTRIBUTION SCHOLARSHIPS
UID is sponsored by the Association Education Alliance, a consortium of 40 leading distribution-oriented associations, including PEI, in cooperation with Purdue University. More than 40 courses in six tracks — Distribution Strategy, Leadership/Professional Development, Management, Marketing, Operations and Sales — allow participating distribution professionals to customize their educational experiences.
To claim your $600 PEI scholarship, enter “PEI20” in the “Promo Code” (not the "Comp Code") section on the online registration form. Select “Association Member” as your registration type before selecting your classes. Because many courses and the conference hotel sell out early, PEI encourages interested members to register soon.
