An Announcement from The Rosen Group
As many of you know, our founder Wendy Rosen is a trailblazing advocate for small businesses and entrepreneurs in the arts. Her work with the American Made Alliance frequently takes her to Washington, where she has been advocating for legislation to open new markets for our American-made products.
Wendy believes that she can be an even more effective advocate for our community as a U.S. Representative. After careful consideration, she has decided to run for Congress. She has filed to be a candidate in Maryland’s 1st Congressional District, where she lives.
Wendy will continue to head the company that she has passionately built during the past 30 years. Of course, when the campaign season heats up, many of her day-to-day duties will be delegated to company managers and staff to ensure the success of the shows, the magazines and the training and advocacy programs. We have a capable team: As many of you know, Rebecca Rosen Mercado, our current show director, has worked for the company for three years.
We want to assure all of you that Wendy remains devoted to growing opportunities for artists and independent retailers. Her goal is to use her platform as a candidate to expand the national audience for American-made products.
The success of the trade shows (the Buyers Market of American Craft and NICHE: The Show) and the magazines (AmericanStyle and NICHE) is a testament to Wendy’s unwavering commitment to you and your businesses. She also remains devoted to the nonprofit Arts Business Institute, and the advocacy group, the American Made Alliance.
As always, Wendy is never too busy to talk to you about your business — and you can reach her here, or speak with her at one of our upcoming events. Our toll-free number is 1-800-432-7238 and you may send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We all look forward to seeing you, and serving your business needs, during our 30th Anniversary Buyers Market trade show in Philadelphia, Feb. 18-20, 2012.
As outlined in the guidelines for candidates published by the Federal Elections Commission, Wendy’s campaign will operate independently of The Rosen Group and its divisions and affiliates. If you want to know more about her new adventure, visit WendyRosen.net.
