APPE – Book Resource Room

Attention Association Members!!

There are so many exciting things happening here in the APPE home office this year. We are getting settled into our new home at The Prindle Institute for Ethics at DePauw University and our Twenty-seventh Annual International Conference season is in full swing!

I am writing from the Book Resource Room desk to share opportunities that can help promote your programs, publications, services and institutions all while helping to support the Association.

APPE Authors!

Do you have a new or recent publication? Let us know!

Each year we strive to highlight and promote the recent publications of our members in the Book Resource Room at the International Conference through author displays, publisher displays, conference advertising in print and on-line and with special programming designed around our member authors.

Conference attendees have come to expect an interesting mix of new books and articles in all areas of practical and professional ethics, philosophy, and other related areas of interest. Attendees use these resources in their personal reading, teaching, and research.

We hope you will consider bringing your publication to the APPE International Conference this year.

Be on the Program!

If you would like to have your publication considered for the Conference program, we encourage you to follow the submission guidelines and contact us with information for your new authored, co-authored or edited books as soon as possible. The submission deadline is Friday, October 27!

Author events include Lunch with an Author and Author Meets the Critics. Submission instructions and guidelines can be found on our website:

Authors on the Program are also encouraged to participate in the Author Reception where members can greet authors and discuss their work immediately prior to the Awards and Recognition Banquet on Friday night of the conference.

Advertise! Help the Association! Win/Win!

APPE can help promote your latest publication, program, scholarship, fellowship, job opening and/or other professional resource to conference attendees at the APPE 27th International Conference in Chicago!

Ask your publisher, department or institution to exhibit and advertise in the Book Resource Room! The Book Resource Room is the hub of the conference – housing Conference Registration, the Opening Reception, Poster Sessions, Author Reception, Conference Coffee Breaks, Networking Space and Free Wireless. Attendees use conference publications – the Conference Program and Abstracts to navigate the conference….which all means that exhibits and ads get repeated exposure.

Exhibits are available on a first come, first serve basis until all space is sold. Information only tables with no items for sale are available for $100. Exhibits with items for sale begin at $125.

Advertisements are also available in conference publications. A full page black & white ad is $125. Due to popular demand, we have also added the option of color ads ($230) and sponsorships that include premium ad spots with the most visible spots in the Program and Abstracts publication (starting at $550).

All exhibits and advertisements include a free slide in the Book Resource Room PowerPoint that loops continuously throughout the conference – stretching your advertising dollar even further.

Reservations for exhibits and ads can be made through our website:


Do you know of a business, program or institution interested in advertising directly to top undergraduates and their advisers from colleges and universities around the United States?

APPE is helping to coordinate the first ever Ethics Bowl Career Night from 5:30-7:30pm Saturday, March 3 at the Twenty-second International Ethics Bowl Competition.

We encourage members to take advantage of this opportunity to recruit top students to their programs and organizations. Tables are available for $100.

For more information, please contact us here at the home office:

Reach out! Be a Conference Sponsor!

Is collaborating with colleagues in ethics at the APPE conference meaningful? Are you looking for a unique way to give back and help support the Association? We have many new and exciting sponsorship opportunities this year at the conference.

Organizations could include advertising items in the new “Swag Bag” distributed to attendees at registration.
Individual members might make a memorial contribution in memory of someone and support a Paper Competition Prize.
Institutions might sponsor a Keynote or Conference Track.
Sponsorships begin at $250.

Thank you!

We appreciate your support and care for this unique membership organization. Your interest and participation in Book Resource Room events and Sponsorship Opportunities directly help the Association.

Please share this information with parties that might be interested in taking advantage of these exhibiting and advertising opportunities.

Proceeds from the registration fees, Conference Program ads and the sale of donated materials along with the generous donations from members and sponsors help to defray the cost of the year-long investment of time and resources that is required to host the conference each year and the Book Resource Room in particular.

Questions, comments and suggestions can be directed to:

I look forward to working with you this year and seeing you in Chicago!!
