Support Your Affiliates

PMA has been working to set up affiliate groups for our membership throughout the country over the past several years.
We have many very active groups within local regions, and if you haven’t already been to one of their meetings yet, we hope
that the list below will encourage you to attend. Get involved in helping your local group grow.

Arizona Book Publishing Association
The Arizona Book Publishing Association meets each month, alternating between lunch and dinner times. Held on the last
business day of the month (except Fridays), meetings begin at 11:30 am or 5:30 pm. We did this precisely because of the
desire to offer different people the opportunity to attend. Some of our members cannot attend lunch meetings because of
their other jobs, while a number prefer to have evenings and weekends free from our “business” meetings. Gwen Henson could
probably give you a better idea of how many people are regular attendees, only at lunch, only at dinners, or “depending on
the subject.”

I’m a regular attendee, and I see a lot of the same faces every time. So I think the set-up is working pretty well. Many
who might have a problem with a regular lunch meeting seem to find a way to make it fit into their schedule when that time
is used only once every other month.
