Presidents Corner

Are you ready for the free community publication event of the year? 

Registration is now open for the ACP/MFCP Conference & Trade Show to be held September 16-17 in Des Moines, Iowa. This conference will be packed with training and networking opportunities that you will not want to miss!

I have been fortunate enough to have attended several of these conferences in the past and they never disappoint. I leave energized, motivated and ready to head back to the office with both new revenue and non-revenue ideas each year. The ACP/MFCP Conference & Trade Show is not just for publishers and sales representatives. You will find something for everyone at this conference so bring your graphic designers and other office support staff too.

And let’s talk about the location?? How much closer will a national conference get to most of our publications? I hope everyone uses this opportunity to include as many of your staff members as possible in the conference activities. To help offset some of the expense MFCP will pay one registration fee ($199) for each member paper to attend the joint conference.

You can find more information on the conference and trade show at The website includes the Schedule of Events, Idea Exchange entry form, Summer Stir details, T Shirt Design Contest and Silent Auction information.

I look forward to seeing all of you in September!
