“I personally enjoy the reports that come out, like the Economic Impact reports. These are important facts that can be used when you are working on sign permit reform. You can actually show government leaders the impact this industry has on the economy. I don’t think people understand it is as big as it is. You say the numbers of people it employs, and the billions of dollars it generates. For some reason, they just think it is a much smaller industry.”

Sign industry professionals can use this executive summary to get an overview of the full Ernst & Young report.
