New Printing Industry Dissociation Founded

Tuesday, April 01, 2014

By WhatTheyThink Staff

Recognizing that the commercial printing industry today has become a loose collection of niches, former members of the Printing Industries Association have founded the new Printing Industries Dissociation (PID) of America.

"We're a collection of groups that are barely related, but we thought having an association would offer members valuable illusions of progress that are critical in dealing with today's economy," claimed the organization's director Franklin Barrellman. Previously the leader of the Hard Copy Coalition (HCC), Barrellman said that the HCC would be folded into the new enterprise.

"Which reminds me, the Amalgamated Folders Association are part of the new group," he added.

The PID will be funded by vendor sponsorships, membership dues, and event fees. Part of our appeal is our lack of agreement, which will make for stimulating and exciting events. The panel discussions should be quite fascinating."

Part of the organization's mission will be to lobby the branches of government and regulatory agencies. "There are too many companies entering our member's markets. They are unqualified and a danger to consumers. We have no examples of the damages this is causing, which underscores how nefarious these intruders are. Such devious and undetectable behavior requires the vigilance only our expert lobbyists and legal team can offer." Barrellman was an expert at lobbying practices in his prior positions. "Demanding results is an unrealistic expectation of members, and we plan to set them straight by having charts, graphs, and exceptional bullet points that highlight key areas of ineffectiveness. This will become part of our ongoing fundraising. As long as the lack of results continues, the more secure our jobs and fundraising programs will be."

It's that time a year again we thought we would have a little fun. We hope you enjoy our April Fools
