A tentative schedule for the national conference of the American Copy Editors Society is available on the group’s site. The 12th annual gathering is April 10-12 in Denver. Here’s the official pitch:
What does the future hold for editors of the printed word? This is one of the many questions copy editors face in a future of changing operations, dwindling resources and shrinking print revenue. Join colleagues from across the country — and mediums — at the ACES national conference in Denver.
The 2008 meeting, April 10-12, will feature the fundamentals of the craft and a primer for what’s to come. Each year, more than 500 copy desk executives, professionals, students and academics come together for three days of lectures, discussions and more. Why not you?
This is my favorite conference of the year because of its energy and enthusiasm. I hope to see you there.
