The 2020 AGM

Posted on January 14, 2020 in UK

The SYP UK and London committees will gather at Stationers’ Hall, London once again to celebrate their work throughout 2019 and welcome in the new year. Starting with a recap of the year, updates from the committee members, an official announcement of the succeeding 2020 committee, and to finish, an engaging panel discussion.

This year the topic up for discussion is Publishing in Britain. This part of the event will reflect on some of the wider issues faced in the British publishing industry, such as diversity, how Britain has influenced publishing in other countries, what Brexit means for the industry and much more.

Come and join us as we say goodbye 2019 and hello 2020!

SYP members and non-members alike are welcome to attend, but only SYP members can vote on any movements made in the AGM.
