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.
