Getting Started with IPNE Regional Groups 

Among IPNE's most exciting programs are our regional group meetings. IPNE regional branch manager Charlotte Pierce coordinates the Metro Boston Publishers group and is actively seeking coordinators to adopt our five other groups around New England.

What does a regional group coordinator do?

Simply set up regular meeting spot, invite some author/publisher friends, pick a topic or speaker (or not), and presto! You have a regional group! Thanks to Meditative Gardner and 2019 Book of the Year winner Cheryl Wilfong and HeartWood Press publisher Lynn Levine for organizing the Vermont Regional Group meetup on April 14 in Brattleboro! See our Events page to register and click here to join the Vermont regional discussion group.

Membership in IPNE regional branches is open to all, with extra benefits available to those who become IPNE members. Use the IPNE contact form for help starting a branch in your area, and watch our events page for existing regional group meetings.
