Clearwater, Fla., Jan. 15, 2019 – GSP, a leading provider of retail services, announced that Elaine Scrima, Vice President of Operations, was invited by the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) to chair the Women in Print Alliance Advisory Committee.
Established three years ago as an exploratory committee—Scrima was one of the first 10 inaugural members—the Women in Print Alliance became the newest alliance within the SGIA organization in 2019. Comprised of 17 female members representing multiple U.S. print industry segments including suppliers, business owners, executives and educators, their mission is “to attract, connect and empower women in the print community so they have every opportunity to excel.”
“I am thrilled and honored to have been asked to lead this group,” said Scrima. “This month’s SGIA Congress of Committees Kickoff Meeting for 2019 demonstrated both SGIA and the Alliance members’ incredible commitment to our mission. Witnessing that much talent in one room was inspiring and seeing how far we’ve progressed in a short period of time, makes the future look very exciting with endless opportunities.”
The big annual event for the Alliance is the Women in Print Breakfast hosted at the SGIA Expo, now known as Printing United, which will be held in Dallas, Texas Oct. 23-25. The group also hopes to provide workshops, seminars and more in the future.
