In addition to the member value you get from SAC, all class 1 members automatically gain membership in the International Sign Association, with access to all of its member resources. From east to west our regional boards and volunteers are delivering education, trade shows and networking events to our members. BC is planning its March 2014 trade show and an online journeyman electrical course. Alberta completed its most successful trade show to date, and they donated the profits to charitythe bulk of which went to the Southern Alberta Flood relief fund. Saskatchewan’s AGM was a big hit and brought in new members, and Manitoba, BC and the Atlantic regions elected new boards. Ontario once again rolled out a highly successful golf tournament. Quebec recently hosted its golf tournament and AGM in Quebec City and they are planning their next trade show in May 2014. Give the SAC office a call and ask us what is happening in your area and we will be glad to share with you the upcoming events. We have also increased our bench strength at the national office. We hired the Zzeem team to assist us in running the association and we are reaping the benefits of their experience and organizational skills. We have also substantially upped our game in our work with government and legislative affairs. We hired Leo Hrivnak to take on this full-time role and he is already making substantial inroads in areas where we have not previously had the opportunity to deliver.

COLOUR MANAGEMENT FOR LARGE FORMAT INKJET

11:30AM – 12:45PM

This seminar is perfect for designers, prepress operators and managers new to the industry.

NOT OPTIONAL: GROWING A THRIVING BUSINESS IN THE NEW ECONOMY This ain’t your parent’s economy. The post-2007 and post-Facebook realities demand that we take a new approach. A new approach on old fundamentals: time, people, and money. This presentation covers: • The role of people in our businesses and in our own lives. We learn about the 3 kinds of people every successful business owner and professional must have in their lives. We learn about the new ways our markets and customers are organised and the new way they behave. We learn about the one thing that is the single biggest profit driver in business, and which most businesses suck at. • The role of time. What is the one question you must be able the answer the first time you open the door of your business; and EVERY time you open the door of your business? How do you determine your priorities and how do you get what matters done? How do you get the right mix of past, present, and future in the planning

What is color management all about? This is an introductory-level color management 101 seminar that answers the question – what is color management all about and how do I make it work? What are RGB, CMYK, and ICC profiles? This session provides a simple, straight-forward explanation for color management with applications for inkjet proofing, soft proofing and creating press to proof matches. The session will provide a basic explanation for common color problems due to gamut limitations and explore requirements for creating good color on the computer monitor. The seminar will describe the role of printing specifications (GRACoL/SWOP) in color workflows. Color continues to be a challenge for many printers. In this session we explain the concepts and overall strategy for a color managed workflow using the solutions you probably already have. Featuring: Abhay Sharma, Professor, School of Graphic Communications Management, Ryerson University

BE A KEEPER AND NOT A GETTER This 3 Part session covers some of the biggest concerns for a successful business: Learn the nuts and bolts of assembling a business that drives retention. Learn the foundation of the customer care experience and learn the function of pricing and how it impacts your business. This may prove to be one of the most valuable sessions you will attend this year. Part 1: The fundamentals of building a retentionbased business and why any other model is a waste of money. We learn how the 4 P’s of marketing have been transformed. Learn how the concepts of acquisition, persuasion, and commodities have been transformed. Learn why a high-turnover, ‘new-business’ driven business is up to 700 times less profitable than the alternative. We learn the nuts and bolts of assembling a business that drives down staff turn-over and drives up customer retention. Learn how Herb Kelleher changed the landscape of business in 1971 and how most businesses still aren’t smart enough to just copy what he did. Learn who Pareto was and why we should care. Understand the basics of the most important concept in marketing today: the customer experience cycle, and how to build one. Part 2: The foundation of the Customer Experience Cycle: Customer Service. We learn why what we think doesn’t really matter, and what does. We learn the respective roles of management and employees in delivering remarkable customer service to drive a retention-focused business. This is a nuts-and-bolts review of what a great customer service design looks like and how to build your own. We also learn why a customer service disaster is not the end of the world and why when handled properly can be more effective than advertising in growing a remarkably successful business. Part 3: To create a retention focused business you must understand the function of pricing and how it connects together the marketing side of your business and the operational side of your business. We look at concepts like premium pricing, valuebased pricing, loss leaders, anchor pricing, etc. If you do not have complete control of your pricing model, you cannot build a high-retention business.
