Committees, Councils and Working Groups

Four committees, six councils and four working groups bring together nearly 500 of the best minds in business information and media to advance the state of the industry on a wide range of relevant issues. For many media executives, the expertise that comes alive in these groups—along with the chance to make a difference at the industry level—are primary benefits of membership in ABM/SIIA/SIPA. The groups work tirelessly and selflessly to ensure all member companies benefit from the results of these collective efforts, and offer a network that strengthens the business information community overall.
