The early bird registration fee of $199 is available to members of APME and ASNE till Friday, April 18.

This will be the first joint conference of the nation's top editors. The theme: ASNE/APME 2014: Fast Forward

Lively and topical conference sessions will explore key issues newsroom leaders are tackling, showcase innovations and provide practical takeaways in such areas as improving content on mobile, increasing audience engagement and reach, and developing partnerships for greater impact.

APPM will focus on innovation and digital storytelling with workshops on multimedia storytelling, onsite sports picture editing and social media approaches. It will partner with APME for a joint session on interactive story form and how multiple layers of words and visuals play a role in the digital experience.

Other conference highlights:

* We will celebrate winners of the APME Journalism Excellence Awards and ASNE Awards at a special lunch Tuesday. On Wednesday, we will meet again for lunch with a keynote speaker. Tickets to both lunches can be purchased at registration.

* We'll party together Monday night at the opening reception and auction at the historic Tribune Tower, sponsored by the Chicago Tribune. The silent and live auctions will offer sports tickets, vacation retreats, jewelry, autographed books and much more.

Two entertainment events are offered Tuesday night. You can:

* Cruise the Chicago River and enjoy the beautiful skyline at a reception on the Mystic Blue, sponsored by the Illinois Press Association and the Illinois Associated Press Media Editors.

* Or take in a baseball game with other editors and see the Chicago Cubs play the Cincinnati Reds at Wrigley Field.
