APME was special; thanks for the well wishes

The APME conference promised to be special, coming in Denver and marking my election as president of the organization.

It was special and then some, and became even more special as well wishes flooded in from readers.

I'm back in Happy Valley after a great conference and a visit with my family out in Colorado. My niece Cassidy met many friends in APME, now call the Associated Press Media Editors.

We changed the name in its 78th year, reflecting a membership expansion that brings in AP broadcasters, educators and college student media editors.

I'm honored to serve as president this year and we have many things going. Here's our website if you'd like to know more.

Thanks to many for your well wishes.
