PNW-ASI offers indexers conference June 9

The Pacific Northwest chapter of the American Society for Indexing (PNW-ASI) will be holding its spring meeting in the Seattle area on Saturday, June 9, 2012 at the beautiful Bastyr University campus located in Kenmore, Washington. The early-bird registration deadline is just a couple weeks away and accommodations on campus are still available, but it would be wise to reserve now since there will be another conference happening there the same weekend.

This is a fantastic training and networking opportunity—at a bargain rate—for indexers, taxonomists, editors, technical writers, publishers, authors, librarians, information and database specialists looking to bolster their skill set from leading industry professionals and the latest trends. The first-timer special rate is only $55!

More details are available on the PNW-ASI website at http://www.pnwasi.org/mtgnext.htm.

  • Author kickoff presentation with David Burch, Starpath Publications

One thought on “PNW-ASI offers indexers conference June 9

  1. For anyone currently active in or curious about the indexing arts, don’t miss this.

    The Friday and Saturday networking dinners are both at 6pm….Friday we’ll meet at Ikiiki Asian cuisine in Bothell, and Saturday at Santa Fe Mexican Grill in Totem Lake, followed by an outing to Laugh’s Comedy Spot.

    Saturday’s daytime program features an all-star cast of workshops and presenters, and addresses indexing methods being employed in the world of e-books with Cheryl Landes’ “Indexing in Adobe InDesign” workshop.

    The first-timer fee of $55 is an insane deal….the food & beverage alone are probably worth over half that amount….be sure to sign up by June 1 to get this special rate.
