ISMPP is committed to serving the educational needs of publication professionals no matter where they live. Although most ISMPP members live in North America and Europe, the number of members from the Asia-Pacific region and lower-income countries is increasing rapidly. Providing these new members with education on ethical and efficient publication practices is important and benefits all members by enhancing the international strength and integrity of our profession.

Only those who live in the Asia-Pacific region and/or a lower-income nation are eligible to join as an Associate Member.

Associate membership provides almost all of the existing ISMPP membership benefits, with the exception of being able to vote in any ISMPP membership or bylaw election, at a greatly reduced cost of $105 USD.
