ISA Elite Class of 2023

ISA Elite

ISA EliteThe sign, graphics, and visual communications industry’s best and brightest young leaders have been named to the ISA Elite Class of 2023. The class will gather at the upcoming ISA International Sign Expo 2023 for targeted networking and education. They will meet again in the fall at ISA headquarters for a leadership conference.

“We continue to be amazed by the talent and experience of each ISA Elite class,” said Iain Mackenzie, ISA’s vice president of meetings and events who oversees the Elite program. “This year’s class is no different and showcases the many career opportunities our industry offers.”

The ISA Elite program was launched in 2015 to help the next generation of leaders grow professionally. One of the most powerful aspects of the program is the ongoing connection with previous ISA Elite cohorts. Many ISA Elite have gone on to serve ISA and its regional affiliated associations on boards of directors and committees.

“Just being in the room with these Elite at ISA International Sign Expo and again in the fall are among the highlights of my year,” said Lori Anderson, president CEO of the International Sign Association. “They bring a level of excitement and fresh ideas to our industry and we’re seeing a real impact on our association and the industry.”
