The Foundation for the Advancement of the Sign Industry (FASI) is dedicated to serving as a resource for the on-premise sign industry and a source of information about on-premise signs.
FASI strives to share the societal benefits of on-premise signage and support the efforts of on-premise sign organizations, including associations, universities, trade publications and end-user groups.
“Most organizations’ websites primarily are about the organization, because they want to add members, customers and/or donors and grow. The FASI website is distinct. It’s 90% about on-premise sign information, not about FASI per se.” — Wade Swormstedt, Executive Director
