The Association of Canadian Publishers (ACP) is pleased to announce that Linda Cameron, Director of University of Alberta Press, will be presented with the ACP President’s Award this June.
A past president of ACP, Linda is recognized for her exemplary advocacy work on behalf of Alberta and Canadian publishers, and her service on numerous boards and committees across the industry. She is currently vice-chair of eBOUND Canada.
“Linda is an outstanding advocate for Canadian writers and publishers,” said ACP President Erin Creasey. “In addition to running one of Canada’s top publishing programs at the University of Alberta Press, she is one of the industry’s most dedicated volunteers. Her thoughtfulness, business acumen, and tireless efforts for Canadian books are an inspiration to many of us in the industry. The board’s decision to honour Linda was a unanimous one, and we look forward to celebrating her achievements in June.”
Awarded annually, the President’s Award recognizes a publisher who has made a significant contribution to the Canadian publishing industry and to the ACP. The award will be presented on June 11, 2015, at the ACP’s annual banquet in Toronto. The ACP is the national voice of Canada’s independent English-language book publishers.
