In 2012, ASBPE will be sponsoring four Boot Camps in select cities nationwide including Chicago, Kansas City, Boston, and New York. These half-day workshops will educate B2B professionals on the world of social media and digital content. To make it possible for younger editors to attend one of these events, ASBPE will again be organizing the Young Leader Scholarship competition.

For the last 10 years, ASBPE has sponsored this scholarship to foster interest in ASBPE by younger B2B professionals who are advancing in their careers. These scholarships are open to all business editors, including print and Web. The scholarships will pay the registration fees and one night of hotel for the winners. Transportation to and from the event, any non-conference meals, and other incurred costs are the responsibility of the winners or their publishing companies. Winners of the award will also receive a free one-year membership to ASBPE.
