Chicago, IL (September 04, 2008) - The Printing Industry of Illinois/Indiana Association (PII) is offering an exciting educational opportunity for industry professionals that will focus on many business- and strategy-related industry issues, including sustainable and green printing practices. PII's Day of Results, scheduled for Sept. 17 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Westin Chicago Northwest in Itasca, promises to challenge and illuminate participants.
