BISG Overview and Progress 2017

The PSP Books Committee will be hearing from guest speaker Brian O'Leary, Executive Director of the Book Industry Study Group on Friday, September 15th from 12:30-1:30pm (ET) at the McGraw-Hill/NY offices.  In the fall of 2016, the BISG Board adopted a new strategic plan to deliver on the organization's core objectives: to serve as an information hub for book publishing; to promote standards and best practices across the supply chain; to conduct research that informed and advanced the industry; and to build a community committed to solving problems that affect two or more parts of the industry. Its executive director, Brian O'Leary, will provide an overview of that plan and an summary of progress to date. He will also describe the overarching problems BISG is working to solve in 2017 and beyond. O'Leary will also explain how members of AAP's PSP community can make sure their voices are heard on issues relevant to their part of the publishing industry.

The guest speaker talk is free of charge but you will need to sign up as space is limited.  You can sign up to hear the talks in-person or via teleconference.  If you or a colleague wishes to attend, please contact Sara Pinto at spinto@publishers.org and state whether you would like to attend in person or remotely.
