National Print Owners Association
MELBOURNE, Fla. — Barry Martin of Copyquik in Hagerstown recently was named vice president of the newly formed National Print Owners Association, or NPOA.
Less than a month from its initial launch, the NPOA has attracted more than 120 members and is in the process of finalizing plans for its first national conference in April in New Orleans.
The new association is the result of several months of discussions by a group of 19 longtime print business owners who felt that existing associations were not adequately serving the specific needs of the small commercial-printing industry segment.
