Immediately following ABA's Annual Meeting, the ABA Community Forum is a reimagined Town Hall with the same opportunities for members to be heard and more opportunities for constructive discussions about our industry. Members of the ABA Board and the ABA staff will be in attendance and available to hear from members.

Booksellers, publishers, or press without log-ons may contact [email protected] to be vetted to receive the link. Due to security protocols, the cut-off to register is 4:00 pm ET on Tuesday, May 23rd, 2023. 

The deadline to submit topics and questions ahead of time has passed but during the community forum members (booksellers and bookstore owners only; publishers are welcome to be present to listen) may ask questions by raising their Zoom hand to be called on or by adding a question to the chat. Chat will only be utilized for questions during the community forum.

For events requiring registration, registration links are visible to logged-in, ABA bookseller members only.
