Association Publishers Experimenting With Multiplatform Publishing

Association Publishing
Move over consumer brand magazines! You're not the only type magazines that are utilizing splashy, multiplatform formats; such as responsive design websites, e-newsletters, dedicated tablet and smartphone apps --- Non-profit associations and their plain print newsletters and magazines are moving in AND investing in the resources to expand beyond print to reach their members.
