PPA launch ‘IAN network’ for member bodies, in partnership with Abacus

The Institutes and Associations Network (IAN) has been launched by the PPA, with Abacus as their strategic partner.

IAN has been created as a hub for the publishing teams who operate within member organisations. The network is designed to provide a forum for discussing common challenges and experiences within the industry, including recruitment, digital opportunities, and the challenges of operating within a wider membership organisation.

PPA Institute and Associations Network

The IAN homepage includes our handy five-point checklist for membership publishers, along with an opinion piece from Ian McAuliffe of Think Publishing. This page will also soon include more content specific for member body publishers and upcoming events that are specific to the market.

“With the world of media changing so quickly, this new PPA initiative for institutes and associations will prove an invaluable resource to keep up to speed with the dynamic nature of publishing for members today. We publish over 15 membership titles and welcome the opportunity to share our learnings as well as learn from others in the group.” Ian McAuliffe, CEO, Think

If you publish a magazine on behalf of an institute, association or membership body, and would like to get involved, contact PPA’s Director of Circulation & Member Services Nicola Rowe.
