The American Society of Magazine Editors
The professional organization for editors of consumer magazines and business publications, which are edited, published and sold in the U.S. Among other things, ASME provides an opportunity for magazine editors to meet with their peers for the exchange of information on matters of mutual interest.
ASME also works to defend editors against external pressures and to speak out on public policy issues, particularly those pertaining to the First Amendment.
ASME was organized in 1963 as the successor to the editorial committee of Magazine Publishers of America (MPA).
ASME now has more than 850 members located throughout the country.
