NPOA Launches Peer Group Page

NPOA Assists Members
With Peer Group Data

Following up on promises made by NPOA to attendees at its 3rd Annual Owners Conference in Orlando last month, NPOA has now launched a new, "Members-Only" page to provide association members with some of the basic information needed to decide whether peer groups are the "way to go," and who to contact if you wish to further pursue the goal. The idea for providing such assistance came during a popular seminar at the conference titled "Pick Your Partners" and hosted by popular industry consultant Mitch Evans.

Peer Group Panelists Ed Guiles (ASAP Printing, Okemus, MI), Dave Monto (Dutchess ProPrint, Wappingers Falls, NY) and Sam Pulice, (Mojave Copy & Signs, Victorville, CA), all stressed to the audience how membership in peer groups had benefited their own operations. The panelists also stressed the importance of being willing to both give advice as well as accept advice from fellow peer group members. "If you're not willing to share detailed financial information about your company's performance, both the good and the bad, then peer groups are probably not for you," was one of the themes addressed during the fast-paced presentation. 

Peer Group Facilitators as well as NPOA members looking for additional information about peer groups are urged to contact NPOA directly at: membership@printowners.org.
