2021 ASI Annual Conference
April 30–May 1, 2021
Happy New Year to all! As our thoughts turn toward Spring, the time for renewal, it is also time to plan for the ASI annual conference.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we will again be presenting a virtual conference and we need YOUR presentations and ideas!
Dates: April 30–May 1, 2021.
Call for Presentation Proposals
Whether you are an experienced indexer with knowledge in a niche area or a newer indexer with a growing business, you have skills and knowledge to share with your ASI colleagues. Sometimes the things that seem obvious to you are new to someone else. If you started indexing recently, then you have fresh knowledge about starting your business and learning the ropes.
The annual ASI conference is a great opportunity to expand your indexing knowledge and learn from your peers. And one of the best ways to learn is to teach others! Every year I'm impressed by the variety and quality of the presentations we have at our conferences. Work is underway to once again bring together a great program, but we still have some open spots available, and we are accepting proposals now.
Presentation slots are one hour in duration. Visual content (slides, screen sharing, illustrations) is encouraged, not required. If you have a great idea, but lack of PowerPoint or a similar skill is a concern, we can help with that!
This year's virtual conference is a great opportunity for those who have been unable to present in the past because of an inability to travel to share their knowledge with the indexing community. It has also been wonderful to see so many attendees from our international sister societies.
