Do-It-Yourself Discussion

Join ASBPE’s Atlanta chapter

Thursday, October 15, 2009, 4:30–6:30 p.m.

You bring the topics to ASBPE Atlanta's first Do-It-Yourself discussion.

Why do-it-yourself? Simply, we want to address YOUR concerns, such as:

--increasing workflow efficiencies,

--working with print and digital content,

--learning new digital skills,

--social media best practices, or

--discussing anything else on your mind.

An interactive discussion with your fellow publishing professionals may help you resolve your pressing issues.

Bring your discussion ideas with you, share information, experiences and best practices, learn what your colleagues are doing.

The format is simple: Attendees can introduce the topics as we go along, and our moderator will keep the discussion moving. Bring your questions and solutions. Success comes to those who share.

Moderator: Randy Shearin, Vice President/Editorial Director, France Publications, Inc., and Atlanta ASBPE Chapter President.
