ECPA has announced the program and keynote speakers for its upcoming Virtual Leadership Summit, taking place in daily webinars, the weeks of April 27 and May 4.  Gathering the industry’s leaders together for sessions and discussion around the theme, “Resilient Leadership in This Cultural Moment,” the online conference will open with industry “practicums” the first week, with sessions on the latest Christian book market data, growing online sales channels, and global printing & distribution.  NPD Books’ Kristen McLean will open that week with a keynote on “Reading is Thriving.”

Opening the following week’s Thought Leadership sessions, will be Tod Bolsinger, author of Tempered Resilience: How Leaders Are Formed in the Crucible of Change (InterVarsity Press), and director of the newly formed Church Leadership Institute at Fuller Theological Seminary.  Sessions to follow will focus on “being evangelical,” “serving the church,” and the “future of publishing.”  The conference will finish on May 6 with the ECPA member Town Hall and ECPA Awards Celebration, announcing the Christian Book Award® winners.
