Pismo Beach, Calif. – The Raymond J. Prince Graphic Communication Advisory Group (GCAG) announced a new program of monthly articles starting this January 2021.
The purpose of the GCAG is to make specialists and experts accessible to the printing, publishing, packaging, and related communities. With pressures to minimize permanent fulltime staff, the GCAG provides fresh, outside perspectives that benefit from a broad range of experiences and a long-term commitment to all facets of the graphic arts industries. As a free service, the GCAG is now offering monthly articles from its advisors group through posting on its website. See: https://hrlevenson.wixsite.com/gcag.
Cal Poly Professor Emeritus, Harvey Levenson, who took over managing the GCAG after the passing of founder Ray Prince last May, said: “In a time of a pandemic, the articles are meant to provide practical, easy-to-implement, information on topics that the graphic communication industry is facing on a day-to-day basis.”
The first article is by longtime industry expert Sid Chadwick of Chadwick Consulting, Inc., on the topic of The Value of Surveys: Customer Surveys—Forgotten, Unknown Treasures. Chadwick addresses, “Why conduct customer, supplier, and employee surveys?”
Chadwick has spent his professional life in business-to-business engagements raising revenues, improving margins, and improving organizational development for customers.
