Partners in Progress (PIP) is published by the Sheet Metal Industry Labor Management Cooperation Fund. It is a joint publication SMACNA and SMART with a readership of 150,000 throughout the United States and Canada.

Communication and cooperation and industry success are what PIP is all about. Finding ways to reach those within the industry who can make a difference—from apprentice to journeyperson, foreman, superintendent, business manager, chapter manager, training director, and contractor—is our priority.

We want to put ideas and proven best practices for getting contracts and labor hours and overall strengthening of the organized sheet metal industry into your hands.
