There’s a brand new program that is part of this year’s PMA University. It’s called The Mid-Size Publishers Event; it’s scheduled for Thursday, June 2, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and it’s designed for publishers, CEOs, or CFOs of companies with 50 or more titles in print and sales of at least $2 million annually.

The new program has been designed to offer information for publishers in this accomplished and growing group–using peers as facilitators who’ve been in the trenches and know what they’re talking. They will share hard-won knowledge about running their own midsize publishing operations.

Board member Peter Bannon is organizing the event, along with PMA executive director Jan Nathan.

Here are some of the topics on the agenda:

Accounting practicesLegal issuesExit strategiesChoosing the type of company to be (S Corp, C Corp, LLC, or LLP)How to grow your companyHow to acquire capital and deal intelligently with venture capitalistsHow to build a company, sell it, and build another

Peter and Jan have assembled a team of some of the best and brightest minds in the independent publishing industry to present to and interact with midsize publishers.

Speakers will include:

Charlie Winton, Publishers Group WestLinda Ligon, president of Interweave Press and former president of PMADon Tubesing, president of Pfeifer-Hamilton Publishers and former president of PMACevin Bryerman, CFO of Publishers WeeklyIBPA Members – Click here to view the full article (login required).
