The Northeast States Sign Association is focused on listening to the voice of our member sign professionals and on making that voice heard on the local and national level. NSSA has partnered with the International Sign Association to be the ISA Affiliated Association representing sign professionals in Connecticut, Delaware, Eastern Pennsylvania, Greater Washington, D.C., Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont. Sign companies who join NSSA become automatic members of ISA and share in the benefits of both organizations.

We invite you to become a member of NSSA and add your voice to our community of sign professionals.

What is NSSA?

NSSA, Northeast States Sign Association, was formed in 1995 to bring both large and small sign companies in the Northeast together. NSSA has partnered with the International Sign Association, ISA, to be the ISA Affiliated Association in the northeast. Today, as a unified group, the voice has become strong and continues to grow each year. Members are active and learn from one another.

There are many opportunities to get involved with NSSA. A highlight of our year is the Annual NSSA Expo. This sign show brings exhibitors from many states together to showcase new products in the industry, as well as informational sessions designed to educate and inform. It has become the Premier Sign Expo in the Northeast and is highly anticipated.
