According to a recent national poll, more than 80 percent of hiring managers surveyed cited involvement in trade or industry associations as beneficial to an employee’s career. Joining FTA signals commitment and dedication to your career that will be noticed by your future employer, and equips you with the knowledge and personal connections that will give you a head start.

FTA student membership is complimentary, however, the following criteria must be met:

Enrolled in a graphic communications program.
Must be a full-time student (minimum 12 credits).
Class schedule or transcript confirming the above information.

“Being a student member of FTA made the transition into a professional role much easier. With the networking abilities that are created throughout the FTA community and at events, I was able to start my career already having dozens of contacts to approach for not only business-related activities but also for professional development advice.”
