NAIWE members eligible for conference discount!

NAIWE members are eligible for the colleague’s discount on registration for “Finding Your Niche/Expanding Your Horizons,” the fifth annual “Build Your Communications Business” of Communication Central, of which I am co-owner. This year’s conference, to be held October 1-2, 2010, at the Staybridge Suites-Rochester University in Rochester, NY, will feature a stellar line-up of presenters on launching an editorial business and growing one already in place.

This year’s speakers are just plain amazing! Speakers and topics include: Rich Adin on getting the rates you deserve; Michael Brady on building a brand through effective design; Bevi Chagnon on using Word to go to InDesign; Katharine O’Moore-Klopf on profiting from being online; Karl Heinz Kremer on using Acrobat in editing; Hilary Powers on setting up Word for editing; and Jack Lyon, Hilary Powers and Dan Wilson in an unprecedented “Word Summit.” I’ll present a session on what it takes to start and manage a communications business, and Communication Central co-owner Kat Nagel will offer tips for effective websites.

The website may be down for a couple of days as it is converted to a new format. For a registration form or further information, please feel free to contact me at or Nagel at

The rooms at the Staybridge Suites-Rochester University, by the way, are eminently share-able. Rochester is served by AirTran (among many other airlines).
