The Digital Printing Roundtable will begin meeting in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex with the first meeting date on August 26th. This meeting will feature Frank McPherson, owner of Custom Data Imaging Corporation in Ontario. McPherson will share the highlights and lowlights of building his digital printing business. Subsequent meetings will deal with database and technology topics.
The Roundtable participants will receive a variety of specialized educational services from the Association and have access to several newly created services providing contact with database experts as well as networking opportunities to help expand their business and technical knowledge.
