PIASC'S VALUE PROPOSITION IS ALL ABOUT THE MANY BENEFITS THAT MEMBERS RECEIVE INCLUDING 3 MEMBERSHIPS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE!
That’s right… it is all about the numerous benefits that members receivecost-saving, revenue generating products and services, as well as support at both the local and national level.
While some of the issues and needs of graphic communications companies differ regionally across North America, others affect us all. That’s why you get three memberships for the price of one: 1.
PIASC – Printing Industries Association, Inc. of Southern California, the regional organization. 2.
PIC – Printing Industries of California, useful resources plus the recognized graphic arts industry voice before California governmental bodies. 3.
PIA – Printing Industries of America, the national organization.
Oftentimes staff receives calls from members who wonder if they should continue their membership with PIASC. Generally, however, they are not taking full advantage of the benefits that the Association provides; after talking with staff
and hearing the hundreds of ways they can save money, time, and effort, 99% of the time, they remain as members. It’s true that time moves faster than ever before and that many of us wear many hats; hence there’s no time to
review what the benefits of membership are. But no worries, all you have to do when you have an industry-related question, is to pick up the phone and call us.
When we join a Health Club, we can’t expect getting strong by merely being a member and not taking advantage of its services and programs. The same is true when we join our local trade association or any other organization.
