Alberta publisher sees province becoming the magazine hub of western Canada

Times are good in Alberta publishing, according to Gary Davies, the publisher of Avenue magazine, a member of the board of directors of the Alberta Magazine Publishers Association (AMPA). He reports in his blog that the association board met recently in Canmore, Alberta to look ahead from the association, which is in the enviable position of being debt free, with a healthy reserve fund and with a recent injection of some provincial funding.
The good news is we came up with a number of fabulous ideas; the bad news is until some of these come to fruition, I can't really tell you much about them. But suffice to say, we on the AMPA board want to take the opportunity that has been presented to us and take full advantage of it. We want to make Alberta the magazine and digital publishing hub of Western Canada. And we have the ability and resources to do so...if even half of our initiatives become reality, the magazine industry in this province will look and feel a whole lot differently than it does today.
