There are two categories of ACP membership. To join, a publisher must meet the following membership criteria:
* Publishers with more than 25% of their titles authored by principals or directors of the company may be eligible for membership so long as they can demonstrate that they are a bona fide book publisher.
** In any year, once an associate member firm meets the requirements for full membership, the firm must apply for full membership status in the following year.
All members (with noted exceptions) have access to all services and meetings of the ACP; however, only full members may vote at membership meetings.
The ACP Supporter designation is available to individuals or firms whose primary business is not book publishing, but who support the core goals of the ACP. More information and applications can be found on our Supporter Benefits page.
Applications for membership are considered by the ACP Board at each of its meetings. Payment of fees is not required until a publisher’s application has been approved. If you have any further questions, please contact the ACP at 416-487-6116 or [email protected].
