The IAVM Press and Publications Committee (IPPC),
chaired by Larry Perkins, CFE was created to oversee and coordinate the
publishing of IAVM intellectual properties by assisting IAVM members in
publishing their own industry-related intellectual properties such as
employee training manuals, “how to” manuals for facility operations,
history of the facility publications, etc.
A portion of the royalties paid when any IAVM intellectual property is
purchased will be directed to the IAVM Foundation. This project is a
great way to give back while at the same time adding member value.
To participate in this special initiative, either as a single individual
or as a facility management team, here are a few of the details the IPPC
has developed that you need to know:
- Our alliance with Lulu Press, Inc., through an innovative
print-on-demand system, makes producing and publishing a manuscript or
book a seamless experience for both the author/writer and the IPPC. This
new, revolutionary technology eliminates the need for IAVM to raise
start-up funds for publishing, carry an inventory, deliver books to
purchasers, generate invoices or deal with returns. Lulu Press is also
capable of publishing materials in other media such as DVDs.
- There are quality control and copyright infringement issues that the IPPC are charged to review on behalf of IAVM. Not all materials
submitted may be published under the IAVM intellectual property brand.
IAVM may choose not to act as publisher or copyright holder of a
- The IPPC and IAVM resources are limited. Therefore, the IPPC and IAVM
staff will provide only limited assistance to members completing the
publishing process through Lulu Press, Inc. which include very basic
proofreading and assistance in formatting the manuscript to insure it is
compatible with the Lulu Press prescribed formats. Members may choose to
hire and pay for services such as a copy editor, graphic designer,
layout artist, etc. through Lulu Press, or any other service provider of
his/her choosing, to complete their individual publication to suit their
- A portion of the royalties generated from the sale of IAVM
intellectual properties will automatically go to the IAVM Foundation,
thanks to this new innovation.
