The Magazine Publishers of America Wednesday eliminated roughly 14 percent of its overall workforce—or five full-time positions—as part of a streamlining of its operations. Departments that were affected include membership, events, research and back office functions.

After the cuts, the MPA now carries 30 full-time staffers between its offices in New York and Washington, D.C.

“The continuing soft economic conditions that affect all media unfortunately made it necessary for us to streamline our operations,” Howard Polskin, MPA’s senior vice president of communications and events, told FOLIO:.

This, Polskin said, was the MPA’s only staffing reduction in 2009.

Trade publishing association American Business Media also was hit by layoffs this year. Through at least June, the group said it was forced to trim its staff by about 40 percent, including business development executive vice president Nick Ferrari and president and CEO Gordon Hughes’ assistant.
