Book Trade Associations Publishers Should Know

It’s no secret that the best ideas and solutions are often achieved through opportunities to network and share with our peers. Having additional ways to stay informed about what’s happening in the book industry can help you keep on top of supply chain standards and best practices. Gathering information from publishers, retailers, manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, librarians, as well as others involved in both print and digital publishing can result in better problem solving and more successful business practices.

In an effort to provide publishers with helpful resources, Ware-Pak will be exploring a number of book trade associations we feel you should know. Let’s get started with a few of these today…

American Booksellers Association, Inc. (ABA)

The ABA is a national, not for profit trade association that exists to protect and promote the interests of independently owned bookstores, large and small. Since 1900, the ABA has offered education, services and products, advocacy and relevant business information for independent booksellers.
