PIM members come from all areas of business, but are bound by the common thread of serving the printing industry. While printers make up the bulk of our membership, we also are privileged to have a number of members represented by binderies, finishers, mailhouses, and others. Associate members are composed of companies in areas such as finance, law and suppliers to the industry. Our Board reflects this diversity. We value their commitment and service.

The first meeting of the new Board will be on May 6, 2008. For more information on the Printing Industry of Minnesota, Inc., please visit www.pimn.org.
