ALEXANDRIA, VA – January 7, 2014 – The sign and visual communications industry and the International Sign Association will receive insight from some of the brightest minds as the 2015 ISA Board of Directors and steering committees are installed.
“Our Board of Directors has vast experience in all facets of the sign industry,” said Lori Anderson, ISA president and CEO. “These individuals will help lead ISA in better serving our members and staying abreast of issues that sign professionals face every day. They also will help our industry grow stronger as we work on initiatives that benefit us all.”
Chad Jones, president of Southwest Signs in San Antonio, Texas, will serve as Chairman of the Board. Other executive committee members are Vice Chairman Christopher Flejtuch, president of Quality Quick Signs in Depew, N.Y.; and Secretary/Treasurer Robert Mattatall, president of Mattatall Signs Ltd. in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Harry Niese, president of Mid-West Sign Supply in Chicago, is past chair.
Christina Galgan, portfolio strategy, exterior branding manager for Walgreens in Deerfield, Ill., and Rick Scrimger, president of Roland DGA Corp. in Irvine, Calif., serve as at large/unrestricted board members.
As part of ISA’s reorganization, each of the three main divisions—Suppliers/Distributors, Affiliated Associations and Direct Members—will be represented on the Board of Directors. The reorganization streamlined the relationship between ISA and its Affiliated Associations. Local sign companies join at the Affiliated Association level and receive automatic ISA membership. National sign companies join ISA directly and are represented by the Direct Member Council.
