Laurie Alpern to handle FIPP communications

Laurie Alpern, the communications director of Magazines Canada who a few months ago followed her heart to London, Eng., has fetched up as editorial and communications manager of the The International Federation of the Periodical Press (FIPP). The association has a membership of 255 in 57 countries, which consist of 43 national associations (including Magazines Canada), 154 publishing member companies, 53 associate members and 5 individual members. It represents more than 110,000 magazine titles.

Laurie spent two years at MagsCan, and was responsible for the transition of its brand change from the Canadian Magazine Publishers Association. Before that, she was the Canadian Tennis Association’s communications manager. Born in Montreal and raised in Toronto, Canada, it's easy to see why her skills in an international organization will come in handy: Laurie speaks English, French and Spanish, and holds degrees in Spanish and journalism.
