The Cleveland Digital Publishing Users Group (CDPUG)

We are a non-profit organization which brings together Northeast Ohio’s digital graphics professionals for networking and professional development.

We keep members connected through monthly meetings featuring speakers, panel discussions or field trips, our e! Newsletter, the CDPUG Blog and Job Bank in addition to our social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Our meeting topics are diverse and platform independent – covering topics such as designing type, the latest apps, drone photography and web design as well as business topics like health insurance, self-promotion, selling art and remote communications. Share ideas with other members in your own expertise or explore related fields and broaden your contacts. Many of our members operate their own businesses, while others are employed at various-sized companies in many industries throughout the area.

CDPUG is a completely volunteer-run organization with a variety of opportunities to expand your capabilities. Getting involved in your industry can advance your own career and business. The wider your professional circle, the more trusted your referrals and the more professionals who can refer you and your business to their clients. Volunteering also increases self-confidence, provides a sense of purpose and contributes to the growth of our industry. For more information on board positions and volunteering with CDPUG, please contact us.

We connect professionals so we can help one another. Join CDPUG Now!
