Change . . . it’s a key word for me during this month. In December, I typically reflect on what we’ve accomplished over the past year, as well as on what we have yet to achieve. If the plate seems equally full on both sides, I feel a bit of satisfaction, but not complacency, since there’s still lots to do.
Some of our special accomplishments this year include:o The implementation of the Ingram Express Program, providing publishers who have fewer than 10 titles an opportunity to expand their distribution capabilities. Through this program, two copies of each title are stocked in Ingram’s superwarehouses in LaVergne, Tennessee and Roseburg, Oregon. In addition, the title is listed on Ingram’s CD database, so that stores requesting a specific title will now have the opportunity to find it. Eddie Thornhill is the Publisher Relations Manager of this program and can be reached at 615/287-5351.

o The PMA Publishers’ Liability Insurance Program offered through Argo Insurance. This program provides liability insurance to publishers at an extremely low premium rate with excellent coverage, including Errors and Omissions. We have been searching for years for a program such as this that all publishers could afford. It is available to members in all states. Mike Mansell is the contact for this program at Argo Insurance. He can be reached at 510/682-7001, ext. 119.

o The implementation of Small Press Week in March 1997 in conjunction with our partner, the Small Press Center in Ne…IBPA Members – Click here to view the full article (login required).
