2017 PCPA Spring Conference: April 6-7, 2017

United Methodist Publishing House


This is your invitation to register for the 2017 PCPA Spring Conference on April 6 - 7 which will be held at the United Methodist Publishing House facilities at 2222 Rosa L. Parks Blvd. in Nashville, TN.  The Conference will begin at 1:00 p.m. on April 6 and conclude at 12:30 p.m. on April 7.

We again have planned two sessions of workshops on a variety of relevant and cutting edge topics.   As usual, the conference will also include significant time for peer group discussions - the favorite activity of many attendees.

The keynote speaker and topic has changed from the earlier information you received.  I am pleased to announce that Kristin McLean from Nielsen Book will give an address on the topic: The Christian Market Landscape: An Eco-system in Transition.

The registration fees for the 2017 Conference are as follows:  Early Bird (until March 23):  $90; after March 23: $110.
