"Networking is the key to success in modern times. For better and effective networking, associations are created, but to lead an association is a gigantic task. It is not easy to manage, especially in the post-Covid period. Considering it as an abandoned duty, OPA came forward to recognise the voluntary services of these presidents of different printers’ associations," Parveen Aggarwal, president, OPA, said.
