The members of the association are individuals, not companies (see the Association of Book Publishers), who must be approved by the Supervisory Board of the Association upon joining. The members' commitment is voluntary, yet substantial. The Association of Slovene Publishers endeavours to influence the publishing industry via international networking and to enhance professionalism through exchange of education and experience.
With the aid of the Ministry of Culture the association has organised the Knjiga na Slovenskem [Books in Slovenia] congress in Portorož and later on in Ljubljana. The on in 2011 was prepared together with the 5th Knjigotrška akademija [Booksellers' Academy] under the title Elektronska knjiga [Electronic Book]. Distinguished guests from Slovenia and abroad (the Netherlands, Great Britain, Belgium, Norway, and Spain) participated at this international event. The topics of the 9th congress included: challenges of digitalisation, distribution, and marketing strategies in the field of publishing and bookselling. The 2013 congress focuses on the new aspects in the promotion of books.
