Advancing the Success of Publishers
in Non-Bookstore Marketing
 
 

APSS's Partner Program


----

At the request of several regional publisher’s associations, we have launched a "Partner Program" that offers substantial savings. Instead of the usual $89 annual membership fee, those who belong to the following organizations can now join SPAN for only $60. That’s a $29 savings! And we can save you lots more...on freight, small package shipments, office supplies, publisher’s liability insurance.

To take advantage of the reduced $60 Partner Program rate, go to the membership form and indicate the "partner organization" in the comments field. Is your association missing from the list? Contact us so we can extend this special rate to your members too. Knowledgeable authors and publishers are successful authors and publishers.  Call (719) 924-5534 or e-mail BrianJud@spannet.org to discuss the arrangements.
