We look forward to leading both organizations to a new level of impact and influence in the photo imaging and custom framing industries.

Coulter, the award-winning association management company, is proud to announce the Photo Marketing Association International (PMA) and the Professional Picture Framers Association (PPFA), a member association of PMA, as their newest full-service clients. As professional trade associations, PMA and PPFA support the worldwide photo imaging community and custom framing industry in achieving business success and adapting to new technologies. Georgia McCabe, an industry veteran with previous positions at companies including IBM, Kodak, and Fujifilm, now serves as PMA and PPFA’s executive director and CEO.

“The imaging industry is a whole new world from what it once was, and PMA and PPFA are transforming along with it. Our purpose as an organization is to provide for our members in new ways, creating new value and new avenues to success. To do that, we are rebuilding PMA and PPFA from the ground up,” McCabe said. “We are dedicated to communication – actively seeking the input of our current members, and our future members, so we can create the new PMA and PPFA together. We invite the people who comprise this amazing industry to join with us as we build a bright, thrilling future for us all.”

PMA and PPFA have grown to represent the constantly expanding diversity in the industry, including both traditional players such as photo retailers, equipment manufacturers, professional photographers, photo application developers, custom frame shops, and professional photo labs; as well as technology companies in the imaging arena, such as mobile device manufacturers, image sharing sites, imaging software businesses, and cloud storage providers. PMA and its member associations are committed to helping these segments increase their profitability and expand their consumer, commercial, and industrial markets by providing networking and partnership opportunities, as well as innovative programs and services for their members in more than 100 countries.

“We are confident that PMA and PPFA will continue to excel with Coulter’s professional and strategic guidance,” said Erin M. Fuller, FASAE, CAE, Coulter President. “We look forward to leading both organizations to a new level of impact and influence in the photo imaging and custom framing industries.”     

“PMA and PFFA are thrilled to be working with Coulter,” noted Gabrielle Mullinax, PMA President. “We believe Coulter is the perfect choice to advance our organization, benefitting our members as well as the photo imaging and custom framing fields.”
