2014 Conference Overview
The Community Papers of Florida (CPF) has set its sights on a joint conference with the Independent Free Papers of America (IFPA) and the Southeastern Advertising Publishers Association (SAPA) September 18-20 at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando.

Planning is underway with an agenda that features some top industry speakers in the social media world and in print advertising. (See the conference brochure, attached below, for the agenda.)

Please note that the CPF board has made many changes from past conferences, which are outlined in this newsletter. A brief description of those changes includes:

• Members who attend will pay $49 per room, per night, for two nights. The fee will cover food, receptions, training and entertainment for all persons in that room.

• The annual awards competition for graphic and editorial personnel will be combined with IFPA and SAPA, and entries will be made electronically.

• Changes have also been made to the allocation of the number of persons for which CPF will pick up part of the tab. This year the number of rooms is less than in previous years. Papers that sell the most classified ads will have first choice in booking rooms.

The Friday night entertainment will be a night to remember. An outside barbecue and entertainment by Trop Rock Junkies will be part of the evening. Trop Rock Junkies was started several years ago by Steve Tolliver, a former associate member of the joint associations.
