PUBLISHING PROFESSIONALS NETWORK is a nonprofit association that provides educational resources and opportunities for all individuals involved in book and book-related publishing. Founded as Bookbuilders West in 1969, it was rechartered as PPN in 2012 to reflect the changing nature of long-form content publishing and to embrace all the partnerships that exist within our industry.
PPN fosters publishing excellence and public recognition through its Annual Book Show and encourages education and development through its Annual Conference and other professional development programs.
The PPN Board of Directors provides the formal framework of PPN. The all-volunteer board members are actively involved in the numerous committees that carry out the mission of PPN.
