ABA Meetups

ABA Meetups are part of ABA's ongoing education initiatives for members.

The Marketing Meetups are a series of online meetings focused on the importance of marketing as a tool to increase retention, boost revenue, meet demand, and promote your overall business. Marketing Meetups are held the first Thursday of every month.

The Technology Meetups are a series of online meetings focused on delivering best practices, and tips for incorporating tech-related tools successfully to meet your business needs. Technology Meetups are held the second Thursday of every month.

The meetups are an opportunity to socialize and learn from your fellow booksellers on a range of topics relevant to the field today in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.  

All booksellers are invited to participate in the bookseller-led educational conversations, which are conducted through Zoom.us, and can sign up through the form on this page. Questions or suggestions for topics should be directed to marketingmeetup@bookweb.org or technologymeetup@bookweb.org.

The ABA Coffee Breaks are a regular live forum hosted by the American Booksellers Association where booksellers can talk with one another about any bookselling-related topics. ABA Coffee Breaks are held every Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. ET and the last Thursday of each month at 8:00 p.m. ET. These sessions are an open forum; the opinions expressed are those of the individual participants, not of ABA. ABA will send the meeting link to the entire membership a few hours before each event. If booksellers do not receive the email invitation (and cannot find it in their spam folder), they should reach out to info@bookweb.org.

 
BIPOC Coffee Breaks, currently held the first Thursday of the month at 6:00 p.m. ET are open to all booksellers who identify as BIPOC, and are a place for booksellers and bookstore owners to gather for connection, support, community, resources, and networking. Booksellers who do not identify as BIPOC — Black, Indigineous, or People of Color — and BIPOC allies should not plan to attend.
 
The Marketing Meetups, Technology Meetups, and standard Coffee Breaks are recorded, and information discussed is reflective of the time of the recording. Recordings of each session can be found under the Education section on BookWeb.org (a username and password are required).
