Virtual Attendance Option Now Available
Can’t join us in Boston? This year we are offering a virtual attendance registration option that provides the perfect opportunity for industry professionals who are unable to travel to the SSP 39th Annual Meeting in Boston to view selected sessions in real-time throughout the three-day event. Virtual attendees can access critical educational content to enhance their professional development and stay current on the latest industry topics without the time and expense of travel. While there is no substitute for attending the SSP Annual Meeting in person, we recognize that not everyone has the opportunity or flexibility to travel, and offer this alternative to ensure the widest possible dissemination of our programming.
The SSP Virtual Meeting will be streamed live in real-time May 31-June 2, 2017. In addition to all keynote and plenary sessions, virtual attendees will be able to participate in six additional sessions specially selected by the Annual Meeting Program Committee…

“…Famed journalist and Texan Dan Rather will open the 2017 Association of American University Presses Annual Meeting in Austin. Rather, president and CEO of News and Guts, a multi-media production company focusing on high-quality nonfiction, published a viral essay in January decrying the “Orwellian phrase ‘alternative facts.’” This June, he will speak to the importance of university presses and their work at a time when such a phrase has gained unfortunate currency at the meeting’s Opening Banquet.
The Association’s Annual Meeting and Workshops will be held June 11-13. The event is an opportunity for nonprofit scholarly publishing professionals to come together with colleagues and experts from across our community. Panel sessions, round tables, and collaboration labs will reflect the many ways Association members join with university libraries, administrators, faculty, and technology and industry partners in support of the dissemination of vetted scholarship and work of vital regional and cultural importance. A preliminary program is available online:
