MPA — The Association of Magazine Media, a century-old nonprofit trade group whose swanky events used to attract A-listers from Barack Obama to Norman Schwarzkopf, is shuttering its New York City headquarters and relocating to Washington, DC.
“It’s part of a long-range strategic plan,” said Tom Harty, chief executive of Meredith who is also chairman of the MPA. “We’re doubling down on our government affairs. We need to be putting more resources against that.”
He said issues facing the group’s 150 member companies revolve around postal matters, taxes and privacy topics.
