On June 20-22, Cal-Western Circulation Managers Association members will be gathering at The Flamingo Resort and Casino in fabulous Las Vegas for our 99th annual event. The Great Western Audience Development Summit will assuredly be our best performance to date. I give you my personal guarantee as president of this organization that you will come away with a plethora of ideas, concepts and tangible actions plans from your time at the summit.

Quite frankly, this is the most exciting and dynamic roster of speakers and programming we have seen in a very long time. There are 23 speakers/presenters in total with topics ranging from Operational Effectiveness to Consumer Revenue Optimization and everything in between. The goal is to present a well-rounded, diverse and versatile program. This rapid-fire agenda has the benefit of providing more sessions this year to keep the audience engaged with bursts of pertinent information and content. There will also be time to visit with other professionals in our industry to bring energy and ideas back to your company.

You won’t find a more economically priced Audience summit of this caliber anywhere in the country! If you find one, then you show it to me!
