The GRAPHICS PRO editorial advisory board serves to connect readers with industry experts easily. Each board member commits to offering insight and information within their expertise, and GRAPHICS PRO turns to members for accurate and relevant educational information, as well as to answer any technical questions that readers may have.
Cassie Green, the magazine’s executive editor, says, “The editorial advisory board is a way for us at GRAPHICS PRO to ensure we present the most accurate information possible, but also to engage both readers and manufacturers and suppliers in conversation. Our goal is to connect those who know with those who want to know, and the advisory board is just one more way to do so.”
