April Edition
Dear Ascend Members and Supporters,
Convention season is upon us and we are excited to announce that registration is now open! Please click here to register today and don't forget to spread the word! I want to congratulate and acknowledge all the hard work our teams (across the country!) have completed so far in making Ascend's 10-year Anniversary as special as possible. What makes this year so memorable is the fact we are bringing the Convention back to New York City - the birthplace of Ascend. For companies interested in sponsorship opportunities, please email our National Director of Business Development Anna Wei at

We hope you're all enjoying what spring has to offer and look forward to seeing you this August in the Big Apple.

Warmest Regards,

Jeff Chin
President, Ascend
