The Association of College & University Printers (ACUP) is actively seeking new membership registration for the first time in its history. The 46-year-old institution, which became an official non-profit organization in 2010, represents print providers in US higher-education institutions as well as those in international colleges and universities. Executive director Tom Tozier says the group anticipates 300 to 500 new active members in the first year.

“ACUP is here to support higher-education in-plants in as many ways as possible -- that includes providing best practices, networking and vendor links for technologies that are driving print business, such as wide-format. Wide-format printing is a big part of many campuses’ service offerings and the 2011 ACUP conference will provide a forum to discuss success stories and strategies from and for those who provide wide format, who plan to provide wide format, or those who just want to hear more about how it works. Beyond the conference, ACUP will also offer resources through our website to keep folks in the know about the wide-format world.”

ACUP’s 2011 conference will be held April 17-21 in Dallas; the conference schedule was being finalized as this issue went to press. Conference fee is $375, which includes membership dues, educational sessions, meals, exhibits, and more.
