Hear the Story of the Sign Industry

A few weeks ago, four ISA members held meetings with senators and representatives on Capitol Hill together with hundreds of other business leaders from a wide variety of manufacturing interests. But in many ways, we all were there. Those ISA members—representing a diversity of business lines and company sizes—conveyed issues and concerns that affect our entire industry, giving voice to the sign industry to our nation’s highest elected leaders.

Their willingness to storm Capitol Hill and their boldness in speaking to their representatives was exciting to witness. They served as outstanding advocates for our entire industry and they have an important story to tell. It’s our collective story.

Government officials, whether elected or serving as employed public servants, need to hear the sign industry’s story. Because of the sign industry, small and large businesses alike across the country can communicate to their customers. Towns and cities have a more robust tax base when their stores and businesses are prospering, and signs are key to that.

Small sign shops from across the country ask for ISA support in working with their public officials. Where has ISA been in the last year?
