It’s still just February, but we’re gearing up for Affiliate Summit East 2013 in Philadelphia on August 18-20, 2013. If you’re planning to attend Affiliate Summit East 2013, either as a first timer or conference veteran, we’d love to see you get involved in the Affiliate Summit Newcomer Program. The Affiliate Summit Newcomer Program helps connect first time attendees with Affiliate Summit veterans. Veterans volunteer their time to share their past experience ideas and information to help newcomers optimize their time at the conference. The Affiliate Summit East 2013 Newcomer Program is being headed up by Jen Goode. Deadline to submit to participate in the Affiliate Summit Newcomer Program is August 9, 2013. Anybody wishing to have a conference veteran assigned to them for the conference must have a VIP or All Access pass. Sign up for the Affiliate Summit Newcomer Program.
