BISG Runs on Committees

Our committees are made up of members who want to help shape standards and best practices, connect with each other, understand industry issues and trends and collectively solve the pressing problems facing the book business.

Strategy. Service. Standards.

As the leading publishing association for industry best practices, research, education and events, BISG brings people together to move the book business forward — one collective idea at a time.
