The AM&P Network is a national association for publishing professionals and its Associations Council is the section dedicated to those working in the association media space. The advisory board provides the strategic direction for the Council’s programming, benefits, member magazine, and learning events.
The board was announced at an AM&P Network virtual conference on June 17. Plumley’s term is for 2021-2022.
The group was founded in 1963 as the Society of National Association Publications and became Association Media & Publishing in 2009. It expanded by joining the Specialized Information Industry and Associations (SIIA) in 2017 and rebranded to the AM&P Network in 2021 when other publishing sectors were brought in as well.
Plumley joined NGWA in 2000 and has served as its director of publications since 2004. NGWA’s publications have won numerous awards under his guidance. WWJ has won an APEX Award from Communications Concepts 18 consecutive years, totaling 32 awards, the most in the groundwater industry. He is a long-time member and volunteer for the AM&P Network.
