Conference Buddies

EAC’s Conference Buddies program connects editors in small groups so that they have colleagues with whom to enjoy the conference. Each group has a lead buddy, who initiates communications. 

In the weeks leading up to the conference, buddies get to know each other through e-mail. At the conference, buddies can arrange to meet whenever they wish—for example, at the beginning of the day, during breaks and lunches, and/or at social events in the evenings. EAC will provide a pre-arranged meeting place and message board for conference buddies to use throughout the conference.

If you would like to be a buddy, e-mail us at conferencebuddies@editors.ca by Friday, April 30, 2014. 

To help us form the buddy groups, please include the following information in your e-mail:

  • your contact information
  • where you’re coming from
  • where you’ll be staying during the conference
  • your professional interests
  • your editing experience
  • your interest in being the lead buddy of a group 
  • any other relevant information
