ASBPE is rolling out Third Thursdays, a great new way for editors and designers to network and learn a little bit, too. Our chapters are organizing happy hours across the country on the Third Thursdays of the month in June, July and August, a great chance to meet some of your peers and talk shop.

And this is 2013, after all, so there’s a virtual component, as well. We’re encouraging attendees to discuss a different topic each month and Tweet about the best ideas you come up with, using the hashtag #asbpe. This allows editors and designers everywhere the opportunity to learn from your conversations and even participate themselves. Our National Board will be selecting the best, most insightful tweet each Third Thursday, and the winner will receive an iPad mini! Plus, we’ll have on-site drawings for iTunes gift cards, to help keep your summer rockin’.

So mark your calendar now and we’ll save a place for you at the bar.
