How we support our members

PGAMA Advocacy - Secretary GillPGAMA supports our members and industry through a variety of pursuits including common sense legislative and regulation both on a local, regional and national level.

We actively engage with legislators and regulatory agencies on all levels and with the assistance of Printing Industries Of America, we are a strong voice for issues that impact our members and the industry. Yearly, we visit with top national decision makers in Washington and locally we keep in contact with our legislators in Maryland and Virginia through our lobby partners.

Additionally, our advocacy encompasses the promotion of our industry and the economic value and responsible and sustainable business practices that our industry has always pursued.  Through Print Grows Trees and Choose Print we have two online vehicles that continually advocate for the value of print. 

 

"Developing a network of like-minded colleagues takes valuable time and energy. I’m so grateful that I am entrenched with PGAMA because they provide those important networking opportunities for me on a regular basis. I link up with colleagues, friends and make important connections that really make a positive impact on my business."
