Conference Buddies Go Wild

For the past few years, EAC’s conference buddies program has been helping editors connect. Those who have been through the program have found it helpful to arrive at the conference knowing a few familiar faces. So, by popular demand, the conference buddies program will be offered again in Ottawa.

The conference buddies programs matches up editors in small groups, with each group organized by a lead buddy. Before the conference, you can get to know the other members of your group by email.

On the first day of the conference, we’ll arrange a meeting place and time for all buddy groups to make it easier for you to find one another. Look for more information at the registration desk. After that, your group can get together whenever you like—at the beginning of each day, at breaks and lunches, in the evenings. When and how often you meet is up to you.

The conference buddies program is optional. If you’d like to be a part of this program, please email by Friday, May 11. 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 please let us know if you’d like to be the lead buddy of a group—we need group leaders to make this program work!
When we’ve matched up all the conference buddies, we’ll put you in touch with your group so you can get to know your buddies before the conference.

See you in Ottawa!
