Our central focus is helping our members develop their editorial, design and management skills, enhance their performance and prepare them to play larger roles in their publishing organizations. No other journalism association can match ASBPE’s expertise and engagement in the B2B sector.
With Your Peers
Our national conference is a terrific opportunity to network with the profession’s best and brightest. Our local chapters bring you together year-round.
