Every two years, 2M Company holds "Dealer Meetings" in several locations to give our customers a chance to meet with vendors, get continuing education credits, and to show our appreciation for their loyalty to 2M Company (On the off years, we take some of these customers to an exotic location). During these meetings, we like to recognize those outstanding customers, employees, and vendors who stood out over the past year. Customers are recognized based on volume of sales or, for those customers who are not the biggest in their field, those who are loyal to 2M by giving us 100% of their business. To show our appreciation, we have an original painting done by a local artist, Tedd Melia, depicting something related to our industry, and then we create limited prints of that painting, framed and matted, to present to these customers, as well as the Employee of the Year and the Vendor of the Year. Below is this year's painting, along with the Vendor and Employee who received these awards.

This years title is "Shades of Fall"
