We are gearing up for Conference!
The Community Papers of Florida (CPF) annual conference is scheduled for September 18-19, 2015 at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando.

The highlight of the conference will be the annual "Awards for Excellence" awards luncheon, which will take place at noon on Saturday.

What does that mean? It means that it's that time again! Time to search through your archives and pull out your best work. Show us your hard-hitting editorials, your eye-catching ads and your classy media packages. Brag about what your paper did to serve your community, or what wonderful testimonial letters you've received from your advertisers. But plan to do it soon! Contest entries must be received by the CPF office no later than August 3, 2015!

Last year at the combined conference with the Independent Free Papers of America (IFPA) and the Southeastern Advertising Publishers Association (SAPA), few categories were used for the awards competition and the entire process was accomplished online. It should be noted that the board of directors has gone back to our old format of judging, and the ceremony will again highlight the winners by video followed by a photo session.

The editorial and graphic awards competition rules, categories and entry forms are listed in this CPF newsletter (and attached below).

This year's conference will include a Publishers & Senior Management Roundtable, an Open Mike session, a digital panel discussion on "How to Make Money Online," and a Three Minute Idea Fair. The conference committee is also planning on using The Leadership Institute for a presentation.

On Friday evening, weather permitting, a Tailgate Party is planned outdoors. You are encouraged to wear you team colors.
This year the conference will end on Saturday afternoon. You are on your own for Saturday evening. Disney and other area attractions are nearby.

Register early! A registration form is attached below.
