National Print Owners Association
MELBOURNE, Fla. — Barry Martin of Copyquik in Hagerstown recently was named vice president of the newly formed National Print Owners Association, or NPOA.

The association has three classifications of membership — regular, associate and educational members — each with its own dues structure. Membership, dues and application information are available at the NPOA website, www.printowners.org.
NPOA’s first slate of officers also includes:
