About this Talk

In Groucho Marx’s letter of resignation to the Friars’ Club, he is famously quoted to have said, “I don’t want to belong to any club that would accept me as one of its members.”

While he may not have seen the benefits of association memberships, there are plenty of them!

In this interview, Tara R. Alemany and Angela Bole, founder of the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA), discuss the merits of association memberships and how to get the most out of any association you belong to.
