Who We Are

Visual Media Alliance (VMA) and VMA Education are nonprofit trade associations dedicated to providing a variety of benefits and money saving programs to creative, web media, marketing and print businesses in Northern and Central California and Northern Nevada. Our purpose is to deliver what it takes to help our members become more successful and profitable in their businesses. To accomplish that goal, we provide personal and professional development programs for both owners and employees. Dues are based on each company's employee count.

The Alliance brings Business Services to small and medium media companies and even individual creatives who are typically underserved in insurance and discounted business services.

  • Group health, business, and life insurance at money-saving rates
  • Opportunities to network with peers and collaborate with other types of media companies
  • Business services like a credit union, payroll service, and collection letters
  • Discounts on business essentials like software and office supplies and educational programming.

    Education is the cornerstone of the programs we offer. Since it is business-centric education, it encompasses many formats including dinner meetings, management seminars and classes, webinars, conferences, and hands-on technical training. Our most popular programs, however, are our insurance services, offering the lowest group rates and tailored to the needs of our industry.

    When your company joins VMA, your company also becomes a member of Printing Industries of America (PIA), the world’s largest graphic arts trade association, representing an industry with more than 1.2 million employees and serving the interests of more than 12,000 member companies. As a VMA member, you also belong to the Printing Industries of California (PIC), the state organization that represents you before state legislative and regulatory bodies and provides information and resources to help you comply in these arenas.

    VMA, along with PIC and PIA, provides you with the management, marketing, financial and technical information that you need to operate your firm more profitably.

    Our employees in San Francisco are here to serve you. Don't hesitate to call 415-489-7601 or email us at info@vma.bz.
