Gearing up for ACES in Minneapolis
A first draft of the agenda for the 2009 national conference of the American Copy Editors Society is now available. The program includes some classics such as “The Rules That Aren’t” along with some new sessions on blogging and Twitter.
The conference will take place April 30 to May 2 in Minneapolis. Early registration ends Feb. 28. (UPDATE: This has been extended to March 14.)
With budgets for training and travel at zero at most newspapers and magazines, many people will have to pay their own way to the confernence this year. Luckily, air fares to Minneapolis are pretty cheap, and the conference fee itself compares favorably with the annual meetings of similar organizations. In other words, it will be worth it.
Find out more about the conference at the ACES site. I hope to see you in Minneapolis.
