Why Join ECPA?



NETWORKING: Connecting the ECPA Community

The #1 reason a person or an organization joins an association is to network within an industry community and develop relationships with like-minded individuals and organizations. As the trade association for the $1.4 billion Christian book and Bible publishing industry, ECPA serves as a primary connection point for its members to network with each other and with the broader publishing industry. Annual events allow for personal connection, while our online community forum facilitates connection, discussion and working groups among staff in all ECPA member companies.  ECPA membership offers significant discount -- or exclusive access -- to the following:

INFORMATION to strengthen ECPA Companies

Another key role of ECPA is to access expertise, data, and information about publishing and business trends, developing technologies and legal issues, valuable vendor services and global opportunities; and make it available to its members.

ADVOCACY for Members and Industry

Members of most associations recognize that they can make a louder noise together than they can individually. This can have a significant impact on consumer awareness, media coverage, product distribution and legislation. ECPA works on behalf of its members to raise awareness of the industry, advocate for its interests, and promote its members’ products and services through these programs:

ECPA also works closely with other book industry groups such as the Association of American Publishers, the Independent Book Publishers Association and the Book Industry Study Group to ensure that our members are kept up to date with industry standards and best practices.

* RECIPROCAL MEMBERSHIP OFFER FOR BISG:  ECPA members are eligible to join the Book Industry Study Group (BISG) at a 33% discount off rack rate for the first year of membership.  Email for more information.


If you or your company is interested in membership in ECPA, please take some time to review and read through our Member Types & Dues page, and submit your application to us. We would be very pleased to welcome you into the ECPA Community!
