Why is APEGGA selling items like golf shirts and coffee mugs?

Over the years, the Association has received requests from members and Permit Holders for items bearing the APEGGA logo that they can use in conjunction with their promotional or marketing activities. In response, APEGGA has developed several specialty items, such as golf shirts, mugs, and lapel pins, that members can purchase for personal or business use. These items help to raise awareness of the Association and member/corporate affiliation, and they help to instill pride in the professions. This is particularly true for those members who aren't living in the province. Since the items were introduced a couple of months ago, a number of purchases have been made by members in the U.S. -- perhaps it's because they're far from home or proud of their professional membership and want to share this affinity with their colleagues.
