Goldberg said, “The Digital Signage Federation has come a very long way in its first five years. From a humble beginning, we have grown in size, influence and most importantly, value to our diverse membership. I am proud to have played a small role over that time, and prouder still of the incredible people that I’ve been honored to meet and work beside. As I assume the chair of the DSF for 2015, one goal for the coming year is to focus the amazing group of volunteers on our board and committees on tangible benefits for our members and our industry at large. Another is to extend the presence of DSF beyond the US, to help position the DSF as the recognized global advocate and resource for our dynamic industry. These are exciting time… join us!”
