YPG DigitalAs publishing grows more digitally and web-focused, we at YPG believe it’s our mission to equip our members with the skills and knowledge to be frontrunners in this industry. We know that executives value employees who can do their regular jobs but who also have a unique grasp of emerging market opportunities and innovative ways to reach consumers. With that in mind, we are launching YPG Digital: a series of programs geared toward social media, the web, e-books, and many other rapidly changing sectors of the business. In the coming months, please stay tuned to these newsletters where we’ll announce YPG Digital events and talk more about how you can get involved. As YPG’s member base, all of you are the future of publishing, and YPG Digital is our way of making that future even brighter.


Look forward to these sessions!
