(February 23, 2022, Warrenton VA) The Digital Signage Federation (DSF), the only non-for-profit independent voice of the digital signage ecosystem, has unveiled its first ever DSF Advisory Council, made up of industry member companies who will advise the DSF on several topics including education, member events and thought leadership.
“The Advisory Council is the result of outreach efforts the DSF Board made to our members this past fall seeking advice on what direction the DSF should take as we all navigate the post-pandemic new normal,” said Len Dudis, Chairman of the DSF Board. “Resoundingly our members wanted us to remain an independent trade association focused on continuing to grow our industry. These Advisory Council firms stepped up to the plate with the resources we needed to further that mission,” added Dudis.
The DSF Advisory Council will meet quarterly to provide the DSF Board with insights and guidance on industry trends, help determine what topics to pursue for future micro-credential education tracks and provide advice on road and trade show participation. Advisory Council member organizations will provide members to the DSF Speakers Bureau to assist with panel discussions and education tracks for online or in person events and participation in webinar series.
Member companies of the DSF Advisory Council are:
- Creative Realities Inc. (CRI)
- Global Display Solutions (GDS)
- Ingram Micro
- Retail Touchpoints
- Snap Install, Inc.
Advisory Council firms will be recognized at all regional meet and greet events and trade shows the DSF attends as Platinum Sponsors and recognized in a new website section called the Advisory Council Corner.
“We’re asking our Advisory Council to lean in and provide the Board with concrete advice and counsel on how best to serve our members and in the process make their DSF as proactive and responsive as it can be,” said Ryan Cahoy, incoming Vice Chairman of the DSF Board. “These members companies are all leaders in their respective verticals, and we want to leverage that knowledge as chart a new course for the organization,” added Cahoy.
Membership on the DSF Advisory Council is for one year, with terms renewable at the end of each calendar year. For more information on the DSF Advisory Council see the Advisory Council member page.
