Publishers know there is always much to learn in the fast-changing publishing industry. Our educational services include the SPAN Connection, a monthly print journal of articles and news items critical to publishing success; SPAN’s Marketing Conference and Trade Show, San Mateo, CA, October 27-29; and our new Web site, which is filled with valuable information and insight into the publishing world.
