Publishing Houses End Merger Talks

Story by Visitor Staff; Photo by Kim Peckham
Published 7/31/13

Mark Thomas, president of the Review and Herald, addresses employees.

After administrators at the General Conference (GC) and North American Division requested that the boards of the Pacific Press Publishing Association (Idaho) and Review and Herald Publishing Association in Hagerstown, Md., consider a merger in June, a taskforce was formed to study the matter. However, GC officials released a statement today saying the taskforce will not continue.
The statement notes, “the nature of a restructured relationship in whatever future format that may develop requires deeper analysis and modeling. It is felt in the best interest of the publishing work of the church at this time for there to be no change to the governance of the two institutions.” Click here to read the full statement
Less than two weeks ago, the association celebrated the 30th anniversary of their move from Washington, D.C. Read that story here.
