2023 ASI Annual Conference
April 28–29, 2023
As our thoughts turn toward Spring, the time for renewal, it is also time to plan for the ASI annual conference. In 2023, we will be presenting a virtual conference, and we need YOUR presentations and ideas!
Dates: April 28–29, 2023.
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. For example, if you started indexing recently, then you have fresh knowledge about starting your business and learning the ropes.
The annual ASI conference is the perfect opportunity to expand your indexing knowledge and learn from your peers. And one of the best ways to learn is by teaching others! Every year I'm impressed by the variety and quality of the information members present at our conferences. Work is underway to once again bring together a great program, however, we still have some open spots available, and we are accepting proposals now.
Presentation slots are one hour in duration, but may be shorter if the subject matter is better handled in that format. 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, due to 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.
