PUBLISHING PROFESSIONALS NETWORK is an all-volunteer 501(c)6 nonprofit association that promotes excellence in book making through education, career development, and community building.
Founded as Bookbuilders West in 1969, the organization was rechartered as PPN in 2012 to reflect the changing nature of book publishing and to embrace all of 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.
