Starting in 2017, RPA has evolved its scholarship program to provide continuing education opportunities for RPA members. Through a partnership with UID, The University of Innovative Distribution, RPA offered four $625 scholarships to RPA members to attend this exceptional conference and learn the latest in the world of wholesale distribution and manufacturing.

The University of Innovative Distribution is a concentrated educational program focused on the unique needs of the wholesale distribution industry. Students select their own half or full-day courses each day, with classes focused on distribution management, territory sales, marketing, negotiation skills, inventory management, sales management, human resources, leadership, information technologies and more. This four-day conference provides retail packaging professionals, sales reps, suppliers and distributors with exceptional information to take their business to the next level.
