Stracher Elected to Greeting Card Association’s Board of Directors

Patti Stracher, vice president of the White Plains, N.Y.-based GLM, and show director of GLM’s National Stationery Show (NSS), was appointed to the board of directors of the Greeting Card Association (GCA) at its recently concluded 72nd Annual Convention in Savannah, Ga.

Stracher joined GLM in 1989 and, prior to assuming her current role at the company in 2012, was the longtime show manager for NSS, an annual trade show held each May in New York City. She also concurrently served as the GCA’s executive vice president from January 2012, through July 2013, at which time the GCA’s management transitioned from GLM to the Washington, D.C.-based Bostrom. Stracher has long been active with the GCA; in fact, before joining GLM, she was director of communications at the GCA from 1986 to 1989.

“Working together to keep the greeting card industry healthy and thriving with other business leaders as a GCA board member is a true privilege,” Stracher said. “This appointment greatly complements my role as NSS show director, where delivering value to the industry is central.”
