ISA Members Named to the 2018 Elite Class. Congratulations Kelsey Dalton, Zac Martin and Jim Bowen!
The International Sign Association Elite Class of 2018 is comprised of 35 young professionals who work in the sign, graphics and visual communications industry. Three members of the Illinois Sign Association; Kelsey Dalton, Co-Owner and Operations Manager of Heart & Bone Signs in Chicago, IL, Zac Martin, Senior Account Manager of Altec Industries in St Louis, MO and Jim Bowen, Lead Installer/Schedule Manager at All-Right Sign, Inc. in Steger, IL were named to this year's class. The ISA Elite recognizes the talented young professionals who represent the next generation of industry leaders.
The ISA Elite program is designed to combat one of the most pressing issues facing the sign, graphics and visual communications industry. As older workers retire, industry leaders are concerned about replacing workers in both skilled and management positions
"The ISA Elite program brings a new level of energy to ISA International Sign Expo and to the industry," said Lori Anderson, ISA president and CEO. "Each class continues to prove that our industry is in great hands with the next generation. Their creativity and passion for the industry is infectious."
