Networking, education, advocacy and trends for member firms

Networking, Education, Advocacy and Trends

NPTA’s mission is to actively support the success of our member firms through the delivery of valuable benefits that provide networking, education, advocacy and industry opportunities to grow your business and maintain the health of the paper distribution channel.

As an NPTA member, you’ll establish or enhance business relationships across the value chain, access proven best practices from peers at leading paper merchant and mill firms, and remain up-to-date on current economic conditions, and relevant industry trends and issues.

Exclusive access to these resources can help you identify new business opportunities, increase cost savings, enhance productivity, improve strategic planning, and recruit and maintain talent. And, while you’re using new NPTA contacts and content to drive growth at your company, your membership is also supporting the paper distribution channel and the paper industry as a whole through advocacy and education efforts.

Easily Find Your Next Supplier

NPTA’s Supplier Search is a robust search engine containing the contact information of paper suppliers, which can be filtered based on your company’s needs and location. Visit – your next business partner is waiting.

Gain Visibility and New Customers

The NPTA Merchant Map is a unique tool designed to help potential customers locate paper merchants across the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.

What's New with NPTA

In 2018, NPTA released its first Midyear Update that provided members with resources and information about the latest association and industry news. The Midyear Update provided insight on how NPTA is actively implementing strategic initiatives to align with changes in the industry. Physical copies of the report are mailed to member firm’s primary contacts and a digital version is made available for download.

Industry Trends and Advocacy

NPTA distributes several reports, containing the most recent data and trends impacting your business. From legislative changes to market statistics, these reports cover what’s new in a variety of sectors, including paper, print, labor and more. Reports are provided by Affinity HR Group, ITR Economics, and the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW).
