The Sign Association of Canada/Association Canadienne De L’Enseigne has selected the International Sign Association to assume management of the association and Sign Expo Canada. This new partnership will strengthen and grow the North American sign, graphics and visual communications industry.
SAC/ACE represents the national interest of provincial associations throughout Canada. Members join at the provincial level and receive complimentary membership in SAC/ACE and ISA. That membership model will continue. SAC/ACE members can expect enhanced support and greater access to ISA programs and services under this new structure.
"The Canadian sign, graphics and visual communications industry really is growing and evolving and so are the needs of our members," said Carl Weger, SAC/ACE president. "With ISA managing SAC/ACE operations, the benefits for our members are tremendous, particularly in the areas that impact our businesses most: workforce recruitment and training, advocacy and events like Sign Expo Canada."
ISA will assume delivery of member services, administration and management of Sign Expo Canada, effective January 1st, 2020.
"ISA and SAC/ACE have enjoyed a very close relationship for many years, and particularly since ISA's realignment, which deepened ties to Affiliated Associations," said Lori Anderson, ISA president and CEO. "ISA’s management of SAC/ACE will allow us to develop even more solutions that impact businesses on both sides of the border."
