What Our Members are Saying

"I can say that we have undoubtedly made thousands and thousands of dollars from ideas I have picked up at the IFPA conferences & Publisher Summits! Plus, the ability to network and share idea with peers from across the country has been invaluable."
Dan Buendo
Reminder Publications - MA

"When I first got in the business as a salesperson at a shopper I couldn't wait to join IFPA. But we were owned by a paid daily paper. So, I waited until I started working at another paper where I could finally be part of a great national association."
Douglas Fry

"IFPA, without a doubt, helped to shape the way I looked at our industry. The friendships I have made are priceless. My IFPA peers are my go-to people when I have a question or challenge. I have used ideas that I have gotten to sell millions of dollars of advertising."
Doug Fabian
