THE YEAR OF EVOLUTION:
First, I want to thank the PLASMA association for allowing me to serve as President. I’m proud and humbled by the tremendous honor of being a part of an organization that not only gives knowledge back, but allows friendships to be created within the industry.
Started by a group of forward-thinking pioneers in 2002, PLASMA has steadily grown in membership and influence over the years. I have been a part of PLASMA for several years and networking personally has allowed several opportunities to come my way that otherwise would not have been recognized. Networking is a part of our industry and this organization has its wealth of knowledge. From this, long term relationships have been created from PLASMA; which has been priceless.
Welcome to 2014, another year sure to feature significant changes in how we service lighting and signs, and how the public finds and consumes it. I find it quite exciting to know that tomorrow’s history books are being written today, and that we can all contribute. It’s not often that any generation gets to invent and define a new medium. And if there’s a perfect group of people to help lead this evolution, it’s the companies that make up the membership of PLASMA.
We had a well-attended conference in Dallas, TX this past Spring, one filled with excellent speakers, bright ideas, and great dialogue. Our committees continue to stay on top of issues, legislation and policy that impact our work and help us network. Our next meeting in Atlanta will further challenge us to adjust to the ever-changing industry we have built our businesses in. Together, we’re better able to prepare for these shifts before they arise, allowing our clients to be as best served as possible.
For our current members and perspective members I want to assure you that the intention of the PLASMA board is to grow this organization without limits. We will stay focused on remaining as a benefit to our members and also stay current with Industry standards and requirements.
So, from myself and the Board of Directors, thank you for your membership and support. We promise to keep evolving to serve you, no matter what 2014 brings. I look forward to a productive year and invite each of you to participate and become involved. Our success rests in the members and we’ll all get out of this what we put in collectively.
Have a wonderful summer!
Leo Murray IV, President
