Two Top In-plant Associations Merge
At October's National Government Publishing Association conference in Hartford, with fewer than 10 members in the audience, it was clear that something needed to change if the 36-year-old association was to survive. This week, that change was announced.
Effective February 1, NGPA will merge with the In-plant Printing and Mailing Association, a much larger group that comprises in-plants from many industries, including government. Henceforth, NGPA will meet during IPMA's annual conference, where a separate track for government printers will be available. This will allow long-time NGPA members to continue getting together, while opening up new networking and educational opportunities.
