The association professionals community is one of the fastest growing sectors in a world that is ever more interconnected every day and where communicating between the many peoples and groups ever more important. The role the Association Media & Publishing (AM&P) group plays in preparing association communication professionals to better connect people and ideas in this environment is like none other internationally, which is proved annually in the membership summit, this year known as the Association Media & Publishing’s 2015 Annual Meeting.
From June 15 to June 17 at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington DC, the conference brings together more than 400 leaders from premier associations across the country, consisting of professionals from publishers, editors, designers, web masters, marketing directors, media chiefs, and CEOs in the publishing industry. The schedule is filled with workshops and seminars that focus on the most pressing industry topics, such as freelance writing, ad sales, web design trends, media strategy, and creativity challenges. There will also be the opportunity to hear from top professionals, such as Mignon Fogarty of Grammar Girl and Anthony Shop, the first new media professional to be elected to the prestigious National Press Club’s Board of Governors. Finally, the event will also contain the 35th annual EXCEL awards, the largest and most prestigious award program that exclusively recognizes excellence and leadership in nonprofit association media, publishing, marketing, and communications.
In this global society, this is a professional industry that is only likely to grow. For those who want to join or for those who want to increase their skills, there’s no better occasion to start. Check it out today!
