Ray and Catherine Chambers Resource Archive Goes Live
The In-plant Printing and Mailing Association (IPMA) has announced that the Ray and Catherine Chambers Resource Library is now available to IPMA members through IPMA’s members-only online community. Donated by esteemed in-plant consultant Ray Chambers, the searchable archive houses work spanning 30 years of in-plant-related research. Additional materials are available upon request through IPMA headquarters.
"Ray Chambers has graciously donated all his research from a lifetime in in-plant print management to IPMA," says IPMA Executive Director Mike Loyd. "The information is still viable in most cases, and can help even the most experienced manager. IPMA is forever grateful to Ray for his generous gift, and this will only cement his status as a legend in our industry. I hope all our members take the time to peruse the database and see what can benefit their operations. Ray has been such a great friend and mentor to many in our business, and this archive will continue his giving-back. Thank you, Ray!"
The library resides in IPMA’s member-only online community and can be accessed via the browse menu as the Ray and Catherine Chambers Resource Archive at this link.
