Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

On March 11, 2020, after considering current recommendations from CDC and elsewhere, the IBPA staff and board of directors decided to cancel the in-person IBPA Benjmain Franklin Award ceremony and dinner. The co-located IBPA Publishing University conference has also been cancelled. These are truly unprecedented times and we, like many who planned to attend, are disappointed. We understand how important the networking, education, and general support would have been to everyone.

The IBPA office still intends to announce finalists on March 16th and winners during the month of April or May. A detailed email with more information will be sent to all finalists now later than Monday, March 23rd.
