SSP’s 2017 Fall Seminar, “New Directions in Society & Nonprofit Publishing,” will be held on October 4, 2017, at the AAAS headquarters in Washington, D.C. Registration for the event remains open with a discount available for SSP members. New this year, a virtual registration option is available if you are unable to attend in person.
Society-based and other non-profit publishers face unique challenges in an ever-changing information landscape. How do we stay relevant to our member, reader, author, and library constituencies? How do we not only meet but also anticipate their needs? Several sessions will address these questions, concluding with a session on “New Directions in Marketing and Customer Insight.”
Wendy Newsham, Director of Sales, Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., will moderate this session, and is joined by Lori Carlin, Director, Marketing and Senior Consultant, Delta Think, Inc.
Wendy Newsham took the time to answer a few questions about the session:
