FMA Community

FMA’s Community Starts With You

For the better part of six decades, the Florida Magazine Association has proudly represented the publishing interests of a state with more than 200 association, trade/technical and consumer publications. Without members like you, FMA cannot accomplish its ambitious goals or promote the publishing industry in Florida. We hope you will become involved and encourage others to join the FMA as it strengthens relationships between its members and other publishing professionals and businesses.

Here’s how you can become involved with FMA:  

  • Attend the Annual Publishing Conference and Expo. The educational tracks at the annual conference include editorial, design, digital, marketing and much more. The expo is the ONLY one in Florida where national, state and local publishing suppliers meet in one room to give members information on their latest products, services and promotions.  This is a great way to network and come away with new ideas on how to meet your goals.

  • Join a committee. There are a variety of committees that would welcome your input and assistance. Committees include the Annual Conference Committee, the Charlie Awards Committee, the Membership & Marketing Committee and the Data Resource & Web site Committee.  The only way to make the association grow and help us deliver what the members want is to make your voice heard.
