APME's 'Great Ideas Book'
 
 

  • Would you like to be the first one to take a look at the "Great Ideas Book," which features the best and brightest ideas from around the industry? It will be compiled on flash drives and handed out at ASNE-APME 2014.  
  • You can still submit your 'great idea' until Thursday, July 17. For print or online, it can be something new and innovative and thrown in from left field, or it can be a fresh take on something we do every day. It's free to enter the contest.           


To attend the ASNE-APME conference, register for $250 if you're a member of ASNE and $350 if you're a nonmember. APME members can register at apme.com.  

   

And don't forget to reserve your hotel room as soon as possible. The block of rooms we reserved at the Hyatt Regency for $189/night until Aug. 29 is filling up quickly. There will be a dramatic rate increase per night when the block sells out.
