National Association of Printing Ink Manufacturers Joins Company’s Roster
SEVEN12 Management (SEVEN12), a full-service management company, recently announced the addition of the National Association of Printing Ink Manufacturers (NAPIM) to its client portfolio.
In November 2021, NAPIM’s Executive Committee selected SEVEN12 to oversee the organization, bringing to the table a staff of 20+ experts in association management. Based in Annapolis, Maryland, SEVEN12 provides marketing, membership, event planning, financial oversight, and strategic governance, among other areas.
NAPIM has been the only national trade association for the printing ink industry since its founding in 1916. The overall purpose is to promote the general development and improvement of member companies by fostering greater understanding and knowledge of the printing ink industry as well as representing the industry on a national basis.
“By partnering with SEVEN12, we are able to utilize the skillsets of a full staff to manage NAPIM’s program and services,” said NAPIM President Gregg Dahleen. “Our goal is to grow the organization, and in turn, the membership, by modernizing our services and bringing new ideas and energy to our Annual Conference and other events.”
Molly Alton Mullins will serve as NAPIM’s Executive Director. With more than 20 years of association management experience, she has worked with over half a dozen manufacturing organizations in her career. John Copeland, NAPIM’s former executive director, will work with Molly through April 2022 to ensure a seamless transition. George Fuchs will remain NAPIM’s Director of Regulatory Affairs.
“We cannot thank John enough for his service throughout the years and all he’s done for NAPIM,” stated Dahleen. “He has been an instrumental force in this industry and has truly helped grow and shape the organization.”
