Each spring, ABA staff travels around the country to meet with member booksellers. These meetings, held in conjunction with the regional bookseller associations, are designed to provide an open opportunity to share ideas, discuss industry issues, and receive updates on various association projects. The meetings are open to all booksellers – both ABA members and non-members. An original ABA education session is offered at the spring meetings as well.
