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 email. 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, email us at

To help us form the buddy groups, please include the following information in your email:

  • 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
