Joe Bowman, president of the International Newspaper Group, welcomed a “good group” to the annual meeting recently held in Chicago. “Our industry is changing and we are forced to adapt. We face consolidations in printing and distribution and are now becoming real estate agents as we look to fill extra space in our facilities,” said Bowman. “One of our biggest challenges is maintaining a workforce as it’s very difficult to bring in technical help. It’s hard to get interest in our operations as no one wants to work weekends, holidays or nights,” he said. “We are now printers, packagers and distributers as our roles have changed dramatically.”
