Valentine’s Truth: We Love Our Members

By Alex Batty, MHI Marketing Communications Coordinator |@mhi_alex

Love is in the air! (Apparently. It could also be pollution *shrugs*)

For some reason that song always pops into my head when Valentine’s is discussed.

Valentine’s Day has become a day to celebrate loved ones, and as a trade association, we certainly love our members.

(Do you know how difficult it was to find a gif that was not kissing and appropriate? I mean, we love our members, but kissing be too much. Also, I have just seen things I cannot unsee… some people’s children.)

With over 800 members, that’s a lotta love to go around. One of the things we love most about our members is that they provide solutions. Business today is all about identifying the problem, getting a solution to the problem, and moving forward. Time is money.

If you’ve got a supply chain problem, they’ve got a solution. You can see them at

I know this sounds a little sales-y. It kind of has to to tie the point in and me not get rebuked for going off the rails. But in all seriousness, we meet members at our annual meetings and they’re some super nice people. Show them some love, ’cause we sure love ’em.

P.S. I know I said this last year, but my favorite fact is still the St. Valentine is also the patron saint of plagues. HAPPY PLAGUE DAY!
