"As a 20 plus year veteran of PRISM, I’m confident in saying that my company is more profitable and is better managed because of the information and education that me and my staff have been able to obtain through our membership. The network of members, the education and the deliverables make PRISM a great value for new members."
Quarterly inFocus Journal
inFocus is the quarterly journal of PRISM International. The March, June and December editions are delivered exclusively to PRISM International members. The September issue, which also contains the annual Information Management Resource Guide is distributed to all PRISM International members, and to prospective members, and as a free download.
Each issue of inFocus examines an important industry issue in detail. In addition, other columns or information appear regarding industry or association news, reports on association activities and special issue features such as the Information Management Resource Directory, Networking Directory, Annual Report, and pre-conference issue featuring product and services announcements of Annual Conference exhibitors, inFocus advertisers and Corporate Partner members of the association.
In addition to the delivery of the magazine to PRISM International members, prospective members of the association also receive copies of inFocus magazine as a part of the packet of industry information sent to help familiarize them with PRISM International. Sample copies of inFocus are distributed to members and non-members at all PRISM International conferences and workshops.
In addition to the editorial theme, the four editions of inFocus also help to promote member networking, inform members about the activities of the association through the publication of the PRISM International Annual Report, and help to drive more business to advertisers, exhibitors and sponsors through the Information Management Resource Guide. Here is more information on each of the special editions included in the quarterly magazine.
March 2012 will feature information about new products and services that will be experienced at the 2012 Annual Conference in Las Vegas. In this edition, all 2012 exhibitors, sponsors, and inFocus advertisers are asked to submit articles directly related to products and services offered, announcing new products, services or personnel, or providing articles related to the applicability of products and services to the operations of PRISM International members. Note: the March edition is the only edition where articles related to direct product promotion can be included. While Corporate Partner members are welcome to submit articles for any edition of inFocus, the remaining three editions of the magazine offer articles that are product neutral.
June 2012 will feature the Member Networking Directory. This pictorial directory, which also provides basic contact information for each individual listed, is a great opportunity for you to include key employees from your organization. This photo directory is the printed equivalent of the PRISM International Community – the online members only area featuring individual profiles. This handy reference is kept by members all year and is especially used prior to attendance at conferences or workshops in order to help “put a face with a name”.
September 2012 will feature the Information Management Resource Directory. This directory is an annual publication that provides listings in various product and service categories and is kept as an annual reference. The directory is also published online and in the public area of the PRISM International website.
December 2012 will feature the PRISM International Annual Report. This edition provides key information to members of the organization regarding task group activities during the year, strategic plan objectives for the following year and financial information taken from the audited financial statement.
