Conference Buddies

At the Toronto and Montreal conferences, many editors discovered that networking is more fun when you start out with a few familiar faces. So, by popular demand, EAC’s conference buddies option will be offered again at our Vancouver conference.

EAC's conference buddies option matches up editors in small groups, coordinated by a lead buddy in each group. Before 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.

Conference buddies is optional—you don't have to join. But if you’d like to be in a conference buddies group, email by Friday, April 15. Include your contact information, where you're coming from, where you'll be staying during the conference, your interests, your editing experience, and any other relevant information. And let us know if you’d like to be the lead buddy of a group.
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 Vancouver!
