For decades, the North Carolina Outdoor Advertising Association (NCOAA) has consisted of member companies that seek to promote responsible advertising practices while economically benefiting the communities in which they serve.  The industry supports jobs and spurs innovation.  Billboard advertisers employ more than 9 million people, according to an analysis by iMapData.  Roadside displays allow advertisers to reach consumers where they spend 70% of their waking hours--outside of the home.  The Industry is partners with the FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and routinely helps in saving missing children by posting digital Amber Alerts on area roadways.
