Printing Industries of Utah Joins with Pacific Printing Industries Association
PORTLAND, Ore. - January 29, 2018 - The Pacific Printing Industries Association (PPI) Board of Directors and staff are pleased to announce that it is welcoming the Printing Industries of Utah (PIU) into its larger organization effective December 1st - this means PPI is now serving a seventh state. The regional membership coverage area is now Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, and Washington.
The association is excited by the opportunity to serve a broader print and graphics industry audience and wider geographic range. Moving forward, PPI is integrating the day-to-day business operations of PIU and has begun to offer expanded programming, partners and resources immediately. PPI extends its thanks to Alisha Hill for her service managing PIU, as well as the entire volunteer board of PIU for their support during the transition and beyond.
This merger represents an amazing opportunity for both PPI and PIU. “In the long term, this change will be a huge benefit to our members here in Utah. It will allow us to expand our circle of influence across multiple state lines and build national relationships that will benefit our businesses. This merger will allow us to serve our local communities and foster regional growth within the printing industry” says Brad Johnson, chair of PIU.
The association is also in the process of its 2018 strategic planning and continues to expand its calendar of local and national educational offerings. Given its renewed geographic reach, PPI is considering a new identity and marketing strategy that adequately reflects all of its’ members and its ever-changing business segment. This will likely translate to a new website and overall branding for PPI. It will still provide all the same services, membership benefits and enthusiasm for the graphic communications industry - just with a new face and name!
