The Association of University Presses (AUPresses) is proud to announce significant changes to its Annual Meeting format.
Responding to the evolving event landscape, AUPresses is making a commitment—and taking the opportunity—to change the nature of its flagship community event. Beginning in 2022, the AUPresses Annual Meeting will alternate yearly between an in-person event and a virtual one.
While the past two years have proven that virtual events can be dynamic, collaborative, and vastly more accessible, elements of meeting new and old colleagues face-to-face and serendipitously have been sorely missed. By creating an Annual Meeting schedule that embraces both the invaluable energy and connections of an in-person conference and the accessible dynamism of virtual programming, the Association looks forward to a series of complementary events that will enhance the collaborative, educational, and professional networking opportunities available to all members and the wider network of community partners in publishing, scholarly communications, and academia.
Planning is currently underway for the 2022 AUPresses Annual Meeting, scheduled for June 18-20 in Washington, DC, with a virtual conference to follow in summer 2023. See the schedule of future Annual Meetings through summer 2026 for more details.
