About the committee

IBPA’s Advocacy Committee is a standing committee tasked with identifying, prioritizing, and developing strategies to address issues of concern to independent publishers.

The objectives of the Advocacy Committee are to:

  • identify and prioritize issues of concern to independent publishers.
  • establish campaigns and take actions to address these concerns.
  • ensure that IBPA members are informed of these concerns, and the steps taken to address them.
