May is ASBPE Month. After all that 2020 threw at the world, ASBPE planned a series of online events designed to bring our community together. Now, more than ever, we are craving connection and we all are more than a little anxious about the future of our industry.
Following ASBPE Month, keep your new-found industry connections thriving and continue learning about B2B publishing by volunteering with ASBPE. Several opportunities are available from a seat on the National Board of Directors to slots on national committees, as well as local chapter openings.
A few of our current volunteers have filmed videos sharing their experiences with ASBPE and how it has helped them advance their careers and forge important industry relationships:
- Travis Stanton, editor of Exhibitor magazine, breaks down some of the key benefits of being a member of ASBPE.
- Stephanie Ricca, editorial director for Hotel News Now, shares her take on the most exciting part of being a member of ASBPE.
- Justin Armburger, art director for GIE Media, explains how he got involved in the organization and why you should consider joining.
Interested in learning more? There are two current openings on our board of directors and leadership positions available on our Webinar Committee and Membership Committee. Committees and subcommittees looking for more help include diversity, ethics, finance, freelance, newsletter, social media and website. Also, the conference committee will start planning our in-person national conference to be held in Cleveland in May 2022.
Visit our page, Who We Are – American Society of Business Publication Editors, for more information on these volunteer positions.
In addition to a virtual chapter, ASBPE has local chapters in Chicago, Cleveland, Kansas City, New York City and Washington, D.C. These chapters hold educational events and happy hours to connect local B2B professionals.
