Every Spring, ISA brings together the brightest young talent in the sign, graphics, and visual communications industry at ISA International Sign Expo®.

Here, they experience unique networking opportunities and free access to all education sessions. The group meets again for a 2-day leadership retreat at the ISA office in the Fall. In addition to studying personal leadership traits and analyzing their leadership habits, the class will participate in several networking opportunities with both the ISA Board of Directors and ISA staff.

Here's what some of the ISA Elite participants had to say about the program…

“The ISA Elite Program provides a unique and valuable opportunity for young professionals in the sign industry to meet and learn from industry experts and leaders and, equally important, it provides a unique and valuable opportunity for young professionals to meet and learn from each other. This is an experience you do not want to miss out on!”

Stephanie Poyant Moran, Poyant Signs, New Bedford, MA
“The ISA Elite program is the best program to be a part of if you are up and coming in the sign industry. It was extremely valuable to meet other young people who share my same interests and desires. I would encourage anyone who is young and excited about what they do to join the ISA Elite program.”
Nathan Young, YESCO, Salt Lake City, UT
