Professional Discussion Groups
PPAI has set up several "professional discussion groups" - the idea is to offer an informal forum for the exchange of ideas and information of common interest, for instance, in management, work practice and technology aspects. Even one tiny bit of information gleaned in such discussion can be invaluable. At this level of discussion, even those in direct competition can find common ground that they can usefully share. Discussion groups exist for Publishers; Advertising Managers; Credit Managers; Editors and Designers. If you would like to be included on the mailing list for these groups please send your contact details with the name of the group you would like to be included in to email@example.com.
