The Young to Publishing Group is an initiative of the Association of American Publishers (AAP) that strives to give entry-level and junior industry employees (typically with 0-5 years of publishing experience) a chance to build a community outside of their own publishing house and to educate themselves about the publishing industry as a whole. MEMBERSHIP IS FREE, and is open to all “young” (not far advanced in growth, junior, lacking experience) persons currently employed by an AAP member book-publishing house.
The YPG holds a great many wonderful networking events in interesting venues throughout the city. Sign up to their mailing list to keep tabs on these great opportunities!

AAP works on issues of importance to publishers including copyright protection, new technology, the First Amendment, governmental affairs, literacy, education, and other areas.
