This year's conference in Halifax is coming up fast—June 7 to 9, 2013. What better way to enjoy it than with a buddy or two?
Why be part of the conference buddies program?
Our popular conference buddies option is a great option for:
- members attending their first EAC conference;
- new members who don't know many others yet; or
- members who just want to make some connections before the conference.
Networking is always easier and more fun when you start out with a few people you already know.
How does it work?
EAC's conference buddies option matches up editors in small groups, coordinated by a lead buddy in each group.
In the weeks leading up to the conference, conference buddies get to know each other through email.
At the conference, conference buddies can arrange to get together at the beginning of the day, at breaks and lunches, at social events—timing and frequency are up to the group.
We'll have a pre-arranged meeting place and message board for conference buddies.
Want to be a conference buddy?
If you'd like to be in a conference buddies group, email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, April 19.
In your email, include:
- your contact information;
- where you're coming from;
- where you'll be staying during the conference;
- your interests;
- your editing experience;
- whether you are willing to be the lead buddy of a group; and
- any other relevant information.
When we've matched up all the conference buddies, we'll put the groups in touch with one another so they can start to communicate before the conference.
See you in Halifax!
Don't forget: Members of EAC, the Indexing Society of Canada, the Canadian Authors Association, the Writers' Federation of Nova Scotia and the Plain Language Association International benefit from early-bird discounts, but only through April 12. Register now!
