What is ASBPE?
Founded in 1964 as the American Society of Business Press Editors, ASBPE is the professional association for full-time and freelance editors, writers, art directors, and designers employed in the business, trade, and specialty press. The official name was changed to the American Society of Business Publication Editors in 1997 and to ASBPE in 2012.
ASPBE is widely known for its annual Awards of Excellence competition, which recognizes the best in editorial, design, and online achievement. The organization also sponsors the annual ASBPE National Editorial Conference. Regular educational seminars are held by local chapters. The society is operated in accordance with a set of bylaws drafted by the national board ratified through a member vote.
