The Association of Catholic Publishers hosts an annual meeting of its members, starting on the Thursday of the USCCB's Bishops' Subcommittee Meeting on the Catechism in September near Chicago O'Hare International Airport.
We gather over 100 staff people from our member publishing houses, and associate and individual members to network, improve skills, learn about trends in the Church and publishing, and further our professional knowledge.
Over the course of the two days (Thursday and Friday morning), two keynote speakers join us; one to address the professional issues that impact the Catholic publishing enterprise and the other to inspire us in our mission and vocation of Catholic publishing.
Leading experts among us and outside our members offer Breakout Sessions. Our exhibitors introduce us to technology and assets during Exhibitor Showcases that can help us be more effective and efficiently in our work.
