PUBLISHING PROFESSIONALS NETWORK is a nonprofit association providing 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 embrace all the partnerships that exist within our industry.
PPN fosters publishing excellence and public recognition through its annual Book Show and Scholarship program, and encourages education and development through its annual Conference.
A Board of Directors provides the formal framework of PPN with new members elected each year to a two-year term. Board members are actively involved in the numerous committees that carry out the all-volunteer mission of PPN.
