Message From The President


The Philippine Educational Publishers’ Association (PEPA) is a united and strong organization, continuously working hard to uplift the industry towards world class standards, for the benefit of its stakeholders.

For 70 years now, we have taken our service commitment to Philippine education seriously – to contribute to Philippine education by producing and providing affordable high-quality school textbooks and other educational materials - by Filipinos for the Filipinos.              

Driven to respond to the call of the times, we keep our members updated, engaged, and ready to contribute to our shared cause by means of social media through PEPTalk, FB page and Website. The PEPCon and PEPA fora  are learning events for the industry and stakeholders. Inspired by our intention to support local production and access to affordable quality educational materials, we wholeheartedly collaborate with partner government agencies and educational institutions. Furthermore, we continue to be vigilant of developments that may have detrimental impact on this thrust. Thereby, we engage in dialogues, and lobby for legislative initiatives to be pursued, that will help the local educational publishers deliver its promised benefits for the Filipino learners.

 We continue to foster cooperation and camaraderie among members through general assemblies  and sports events. Given the challenges of the 21st Century, and with the advancements in technology impacting industries, and societies, we shall, again be at the forefront, supporting education initiatives that will equip and rally the Filipinos to be globally competitive and ready to contribute and be productive.

Together, let us continue the legacy of uplifting the educational publishing industry in collaboration with the various stakeholders. Let us commit to deliver a lasting and meaningful contribution to our nation, and make our predecessors proud.

We are ONE TEAM …. Your partner in education…. Proudly PEPA !
