Name change for magazine industry body

THE membership organisation for magazine publishers has changed its name.

The Periodical Publishers Association is now to be known as the Professional Publishers Association.

In a statement issued by the PPA, Barry McIlheney, chief executive, is quoted, saying: “Today’s PPA members are professional publishers of immersive, high-quality content. In recent years their businesses have changed dramatically as they deliver this content across an increasing variety of platforms.

“We have changed our name to acknowledge this development, and to reflect our commitment to serving our members’ needs and representing their interests as their businesses continue to evolve.”
