Providing educational resources and opportunities for all individuals involved in book and book-related publishing.

Become a Member of Publishing Professionals Network

PPN membership is open to any individual or company in the publishing business, and we heartily welcome and encourage you to join. PPN has something to offer all — from the self-publisher to the major corporate entity and from the freelancer to the large full-service provider.


PPN hosts social events throughout the year, providing great opportunities for members to connect with other publishing professionals.


The annual PPN Conference provides a full day of learning and connecting with industry colleagues. Our presenters cover topic areas ranging from acquisitions and marketing to design and production through content conversion and delivery. Topics for 2017 sessions include:

Design Thinking, Design Collaboration
Finding, Inspiring, and Developing Authors
What is “Book Marketing” vs. “Publicity” Today: Clearing the Confusion
Beyond Burnout: Maintaining Agency and Equilibrium in Times of Stress

Support and Develop Both the Future and Current Publishing Community

By awarding annual scholarships, we recognize and encourage graphic arts students planning careers in book publishing. In addition, our Freelance Directory and Jobs Bank aids those in the industry looking for just the right person, and those that are looking for their next great job or project.


As a PPN member you receive discounts on all networking and educational events.


Our dues are only:

$50.00 for companies with one employee
$150.00 for companies of 3 to nine employees
$350.00 for companies of 10 or more

Also consider becoming a Supporting Corporate Member for $750. As a Supporting Corporate Member, you will help underwrite and develop our scholarship program. The additional dues go directly to the PPN Scholarship Fund. Your company will receive recognition for your contribution both at the scholarship event and the PPN Conference.

Dues can be paid online and are annual from January to December.
