History of NOPI

Breaking ground

NOPI began in 1983 with less than seven members from the Chicago area. Today, it is a national organization with more than 800 regular supporters. The industry's Executive Committee is comprised of key representatives from the manufacturing and distribution sides of the industry.

The first industry-hosted Spirit of Life Award Dinner, held in 1983, raised $23,000 toward City of Hope services and research. Since its founding, the annual office products industry fundraising campaign has raised $103 million through its annual support efforts that include employee giving drives, company hosted events as well as product and customer promotions.
