TEMPE, ARIZ., October 9, 2017 – ECPA has announced the recipients of the Emerging Leaders scholarship program for ECPA PubU, the industry’s training and networking event for Christian publishing professionals.  Sponsored by NPD Book and ECPA, nominations were made by Christian publishers with a goal to invest in up and coming industry professionals identified as future leaders.  Nominees were considered based on their current and potential contributions to their companies.

“It’s a pleasure to support the Emerging Leaders program at PubU for the second year in a row,” expressed Kristen McLean, Executive Director of Business Development at NPD Book.  “We really believe in supporting and encouraging the development of the next generation of Christian publishing leadership at NPD, and we think PubU is the perfect opportunity to work with publishers to identify and nurture these fantastic candidates.”

The class of ten, selected from a strong pool of candidates, will be officially introduced at PubU and honored at the opening session, which will also feature a keynote by Gabe Lyons and the announcement of the Top Shelf Book Cover Award winners.

“The industry is already recognizing the positive effect of identifying and supporting the next generation of publishing professionals,” stated ECPA executive director Stan Jantz. “These are the voices we need to take Christian publishing into the future and we congratulate the 2017 class of industry emerging leaders.”
