Thank You!

We are grateful for the community that joined us at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center, June 11-13! 

More than 660 scholarly publishing professionals gathered at the Detroit Marriott Renaissance Center from June 11-13 for the AUPresses 2019 Annual Meeting. With 119 member presses represented and registrants coming from 16 countries, AUPresses 2019 created an incredible learning and sharing environment on site, and we look forward to seeing the conversations begun there continue via email lists, collaboration tools, Twitter feeds, and in-person meetings throughout the year.

AUPresses offers a special thanks to our host presses. This was the first-ever annual meeting held in Michigan, and Michigan State University Press, Wayne State University Press, and the University of Michigan Press were well-represented and generously donated books, mugs, and bottle openers, as well as logistical support and guidance.

Special thanks go to the 2019 Annual Meeting Program Committee, speakers, mentors, and participants for making the 2019 Meeting a success.
