About Premier Group Network
Established in 1997, Premier Catalog Group AKA Premier Group Network is 501(c)6 non-profit trade organization and an alliance of top industry suppliers and independent distributors that partner together to build their businesses. We are a unique and successful group focused on improving business through shared experiences, close relationships and partnership, and great pricing/support programs.
Our mission is to contribute to the success and growth of individual member companies through a unique partnering structure that promotes best industry pricing, encourages information sharing, and fosters strong business relationships.
Why Premier Group Is Unique
Distributor and supplier members of Premier Group Network have equal stake and voice in organization policies, governance and structure. It is this that distinguishes Premier Group Network from traditional partnering groups where suppliers are preferred vendors and have more competition within a certain product category. As such, PG aims to minimize the number of suppliers in a product category and only adds new suppliers that can offer a distinct value proposition to the group.
New Supplier Applications
Supplier applications must demonstrate how a company fits into the existing Premier Group Network membership and focus on what differentiates them from our current supplier members. Additionally, applications from suppliers that represent categories already represented should emphasize any strategic advantage PG distributor members will be afforded should and invitation for membership be extended.

Discovery Process - Does PG Membership Make Sense?
Suppliers often join Premier Group prior to the new calendar year with enough time to be included in the upcoming catalog (submitting application in the 4th quarter of the year). As such we ask for all interested suppliers to make application by August 15. However, if an interested supplier would like to submit an application earlier in the year for review, the Board will determine if the supplier application will be processed before Q4.
Once you determine you would like to apply for membership with Premier Group Network complete the application in full before submitting it for review.
Upon receipt membership applications are reviewed for recommendation by the Premier Group Network Membership Committee before being submitted to the Board of Directors for approval. Members must be approved by the Board of Directors.
