Special offer: first-time attendees

A registration discount and a free membership for those who have never before attended the annual ASNE convention.

The convention, April 6-9 in San Diego, promises to spark your imagination to the possibilities of new technology and great journalism. ASNE membership offers journalism leaders the chance to grow as their careers change.

Now you can be part of both with this special offer.

ASNE is offering first-time convention attendees a full registration to the ASNE convention AND a year's free membership -- all for only $350. That's less than the regular cost of attending the convention alone.

The convention will be defined by a simple theme: Innovation. Motivation. Leadership.

Each day will offer innovations and new ideas. You'll be stimulated by thought-provoking speakers like Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, Charlene Li of the Altimeter Group, IDEO's David Kelley, and “Drive” author Daniel Pink. Presentations, panels and workshops will offer the latest on monetization, online reader comments, expanding your audience through social networking and the continuing debate about content aggregators and copyright.

ASNE membership will benefit you through networking with fellow newsroom leaders, free webinars and access to ASNE's Washington-based legal counsel for guidance or referral on issues affecting you locally.
