We have been listening, reflecting and learning and... our industry is not racially diverse. Now it is time for some action. The Noted Community and the GCA are ready to take the first step in making a change. Please join us as we will hold a Noted Pitch Program for Black-Owned Companies/ Black Makers.
Webinar ended
The GCA's unique Noted Pitch Program offers makers the chance to "pitch" their greeting card line to a panel of the top retailers, sales reps and or international distributors in the industry, plus a large group of retailers online. Each selected maker will have 5 minutes to present their line to the panel, leaving time at the end for questions/comment if desired. The five minute limit is strictly enforced and will go fast but being organized and concise, past Pitchers have made great connections and sales.

This event's pitch panel will feature Vanessa Raptopoulos - Awesome Brooklyn, Chandra Greer - Greer Chicago, Kristina Burkey - Calliope Paperie, and Kyle Williams - Paper Source.

Retailers and sales reps across the country are invited to attend and learn about these great Black makers, download samples of their work and start to diversify your collection. The event is just $10 and open to retailers only. $5 of each ticket will go to a Noted 2021 scholarship for a maker of color.
