Where in the World Is Florrie?

by Florrie Binford Kichler

In business, as in life, relationships matter. The internal strength of IBPA has always depended on the publisher-to-publisher connection, sharing knowledge and experience with one another either electronically or in person. Building connections is equally critical in the industry at large. Effectively advocating for and defending our members’ rights, bringing you the latest information from educational and other industry events that affect you as an independent publisher, and introducing new marketing and benefit opportunities are just a few of the advantages that come from IBPA’s presence and influence “out there.”

Which is why one of the major elements of my job as president is to represent IBPA on boards and at publishing industry events, trade shows, and conferences. When I’m out there, so are you, and so is IBPA. So grab the boarding pass, the laptop, and the baggie with 3 ounces of liquid and join me as we take a whirlwind tour of where IBPA and I have been over the last few months and view a snapshot of what’s coming up.
