Default Ad Conference deadline approaching

The registration deadline for APA’s 2010 Advertising Conference is fast approaching. Those interested in attending the annual event must register by March 8. Registration forms and informational flyers have been sent to all member newspapers, and additional copies are available at the Association’s Web site—in the “Upcoming Events” Section.

This year’s Ad Conference will convene at the Clarion on the Lake in Hot Springs. As in recent years, the meeting will include the Awards Banquet, during which the winners of the 2010 Better Newspaper Advertising Contest will be announced, an Idea Exchange with cash prizes and roundtable discussions. Nationally-known consultant, author and speaker Mike Blinder will be the featured speaker.
