ASNE-APME 2014: Fast Forward kicks off today, and we can't wait to see you! Here are some reminders about the conference and today's events:
Registration opens at 8 a.m. today in the Crystal Ballroom foyer, which is on the Green Level in the West Tower (that is street level).
- The Wi-Fi network in meeting rooms is ASNEAPME2014. There is no password needed.
- If you registered with our group block of hotel rooms, the Wi-Fi in your guest room is also provided. You should select the $9.95 option when prompted on your laptop or mobile device; that amount will be deducted from your bill.
We have a great group of students from Ball State University and Columbia College Chicago covering the conference. You can follow along with their coverage here.
The official conference hashtag is #editors2014. Use it early and often!
Opening night reception and auction (Tonight!)
We hope to see everyone at the opening night reception and auction from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Howells & Hood, which is on the ground floor of the Tribune Tower at 435 N. Michigan Ave. Make sure to bring your nametag to get in! Appetizers and beverages will be served, and Second City will perform.
Message from APSE
Here is a message from APSE regarding hiring practices in sports departments. They urge sports editors to adopt a policy similar to the NFL's Rooney Rule that would require at least one minority candidate for each job opening.
