Conference for freelancers on Sept. 25 and 26

If you’re thinking of launching or expanding your freelance legal business or wondering how to market yourself more effectively, please consider attending a conference I’m involved with in Rochester, NY, on Sept. 25 and 26: “The New Marketing 101: Using Today’s Technology to Attract Tomorrow’s Clients,” the fourth annual “Build Your Communications Business” conference of Communication Central (I’m a co-owner). NAIWE members are eligible for a colleague discount on registration!

My Communication Central co-owner and I are presenting a pre-conference session on the afternoon of Sept. 25 on “Get Your Freelance Business Up & Running.”

Conference speakers on Saturday, Sept. 26, are Neil Hair, PhD, social networking expert; Dick Margulis, publishing consultant; Emily Carpenter, networking “addict”; and Steve Tylock, author of a book on using LinkedIn.

The conference hotel is a brand-new Staybridge Suites, right on the Genesee River, with free airport shuttle service and free parking.

Had a great time making a speech on freelancing to the Society for Professional Journalists (SPJ) at the 100th SPJ convention in Indianapolis, IN, on Aug. 29. Met and made friends with a number of other freelancers and reconnected with several old friends from my days in DC and St. Louis!
