What does MSSA mean to you?

As 2019 comes to an end, we asked our members to tell us what their MSSA membership has meant to them over the last year or decade even. A common theme amongst each submission were the relationships formed between other MSSA members. MSSA is fortunate to have very active members eager to attend all three industry related networking events it hosts each year. During these events old friends reunite, new relationships (both business and personal) are developed and our association continues to grows stronger.


MSSA is proud to maintain its Members Supporting Members effort in which MSSA member companies do everything they can to conduct business within the membership of the association because MSSA understands it cannot succeed without the success of its member companies. Efforts like this help our member companies grow their businesses while also strengthening the membership of the association. 


Check out a few of the testimonies we have received and let us know what MSSA has meant to you:


"MSSA is a group of friends who all have and share a wealth of knowledge with collogues in the same field of work.  MSSA is an unbelievable marketing and networking opportunity for our company.  Each show's seminars offer an educational experience that members would not otherwise have access to.  It has such a loyal membership, we have companies who work with us because of our involvement in the association." — Britt Covington, Sign Pro Wholesale


"We choose to be members of MSSA because of the relationships. Relationships that are open and collaborative. Partnerships that bring a return on investment towards growing business, staying in tune with the industry, and ultimately better serving our customers. It's a membership that respects one another, shares knowledge and ideas, and inspires. Personally and professionally I have grown to be a better person because of the relationships formed through MSSA. Colleagues and associates that I am lucky to know and I will continue to know for many years to come. I/we are proud to be MSSA members." — Mike Lev, Harbinger Sign Company


"When I started my first job in the sign industry, it was just that - just a job. I quickly realized our industry was more than just a paycheck, and the job became a career. Once I got involved with MSSA, it became a passion. As a member of the Mid-South Sign Association, I was exposed to education, business resources and stimulating relationships. Colleagues became friends, mentors and even family. Because of the association and especially my experience in the MSSA Elite program and committee involvement, I have developed lasting relationships and have been able to grow both professionally and personally. I would not be where I am today without my involvement in Mid-South." — Tori Rivers, GSG
