Future of Canadian Booksellers Association in the balance

Oct 10 2012

Members of the Canadian Booksellers Association are being asked to decide on the future direction of the association at its upcoming annual general meeting.

"We feel it’s crucial for the CBA in some form to continue to exist and for booksellers to have a national voice," says vice-president Christopher Smith. "It's just a question of how that's going to look."

Smith would not elaborate on what specific options are being considered, though members who sat in on one of a number of recent conference calls say they're being presented with two clear alternatives: either the CBA is dissolved completely or it gets absorbed by the Retail Council of Canada.
