MANHATTAN BEACH, California , December 26, 2023 (press release) –

As the year comes to a close, we’d like to take this opportunity to wish IBPA members and friends happy holidays and thank you for your contributions of time, talent and treasure, without which, we could not have fulfilled our IBPA mission “to lead and serve the independent publishing community through advocacy, education, and tools for success.”

In addition to providing 36+ monthly webinars, podcasts, and roundtables, six issues of the IBPA Independent magazine, over a hundred member benefits, and dozens of cooperative marketing opportunities throughout this year, we also launched several new initiatives besides...and more are in the works, readying for their 2024 debut. The work never stops because providing indie publishers with access, tools and education they need to be successful is our goal. So, stick around and help us to help you forge a path to publishing success in 2024!
