“Savvy business owners in our industry are weighing every business decision, large or small. All aspects of a purchase, be it equipment, supplies, services, or an association membership must be analyzed to be sure that a significant ROI is achievable. Of course, every membership decision should also take into account the many intangible benefits that are also present within the organization. These include networking opportunities, fellowship with other printing executives, and support of association activities designed to strengthen the entire industry.  However, bottom line, an organization such as Printing Industries Alliance must also demonstrate concrete, real dollar value to its membership. We think the numbers contained in our “2015 Membership ROI” report do just that.”
