"Attending the IBPA Publishing University was worth every penny and every minute away from my office. I have learned SO much from IBPA that all I can say is that I wish I’d discovered it much sooner. A lot of wasted time and money could have been saved, and my company would be much further along in its development had I known of IBPA sooner.” ‐ Karen Gray, Acacia Publishing, Inc., Phoenix, AZ
