Are you excited about EAC's conference because you'll be meeting new people? Or are you anxious about EAC's conference because you won't know very many people?
EAC's Conference Buddies matches outgoing editors with shy editors. We'll arrange pairs or small groups that can meet up at the start of the conference day, sit together at full-group sessions and lunches, and get together at breaks and social events.
Conference Buddies is optional—you don't have to join. But if you do want some Conference Buddies, email Helena Aalto by Friday, May 15. Be sure to identify yourself as shy or outgoing and include your contact information, where you're coming from and where you'll be staying during the conference. Feel free to include information about yourself that you'd like us to know as well—especially if it might help us find your matches.
When we've matched all Conference Buddies, we'll put the groups in touch with one another so they can coordinate to meet up at the conference.
Whether you're outgoing or shy, you'll have an even better time at the conference if you join Conference Buddies. We look forward to hearing from you.
