ISA-UK, powered by BSGA, now provides members access to online training and research through the website, www.uksigns.org. These benefits come from the newly forged relationship between ISA and BSGA which took effect January 1.

As World War II raged on, a group of sign company professionals gathered to discuss ways that they could help grow their industry. Out of that meeting, and under the direction of Executive Secretary Maury Ely, the National Electric Sign Association was born on January 11, 1944, in Chicago, Illinois. Reflecting the growth in the industry—in both geography and technology—NESA changed its name to the International Sign Association in the mid-1990s.

Members of ISA-UK, powered by British Sign and Graphics Association, will see immediate benefits from the newly forged relationship, ISA president and CEO Lori Anderson announced today. Anderson made the announcement as part of the British Sign Awards held in Leicester, England.

Students say they are more likely to consider a career in the sign, graphics and visual communications industry after participating in ISA's Sign Manufacturing Day 2018. Companies say the event was exciting for current employees and provided an important relationship with local educators.

A record number of sign, graphics and visual communications companies across North America will invite students to learn more about career opportunities as part of ISA Sign Manufacturing Day 2018. The event will be held October 5, throughout the U.S. and Canada.**

The International Sign Association announces its newest partnership, ISA-UK, powered by The British Sign & Graphics Association. ISA-UK will allow ISA and BSGA to work together on issues common across the sign, graphics and visual communications industry, including codes and regulations, research, workforce education and events.

Wide format printers already are using their equipment to create banners, vehicle graphics, signs, window graphics and backlit displays. So, what's next to continue growing their businesses?

Craig Campbell, former market manager-graphic innovations for ORAFOL Americas, has joined the International Sign Association as director, strategic initiatives. In his new role, Campbell will be responsible the development of new programs and services and outreach to niche groups. Campbell will begin his new role July 9 and will be working out of the ISA offices in Alexandria, Virginia.

The sign, graphics and visual communications industry is poised for continued above-average growth into 2019, according to the ISA Sign Industry Quarterly Economic Report. The market is particularly strong in 2018 though most sectors slow the pace of growth in 2019.
