OPEN NEW DOORS BY BECOMING PART OF A LARGER COMMUNITY.
New opportunities are out there, but you have to go and get them. Printers should consider being more involved in the local and professional community. That means joining a professional group or organization.
Joining an industry association or group can be well worth the price of admission, regardless of the size of your shop. The dues often pay for themselves in the form of discounts, opportunities to network with peers, and access to important safety and relevant professional information.
Bryan Hall, President of Graphic Visual Solutions, shared an example benefit, “Another industry association was asking $1200 for registration for a program on Hazard Communications. The same information is being given FREE from PIA in the latest Hazard Communication Guide for Printer Operations, Version 2.0. That’s a pretty substantial savings, no matter how big you are.”
The video below is a testimonial by Bryan Hall on how professional organizations have been an invaluable asset to his professional growth and the success of his company.
