SABEW annual conference approaching

March 12, 2007

The deadline to register for the Society of American Business Editors and Writers annual conference in Orange County, Calif., at the early bird rate is Thursday, March 15. The early bird rate is only $400 for SABEW members.

One centerpiece of the conference will be a town hall-like meeting that will set the stage for revisions to SABEW’s ethical guidelines for its members. And, of course, SABEW will honor our Best In Business contest winners at the Orange County event.

SABEWEditors attending will gain hands-on tips on everything from creating award-winning work from small staffs to boosting coverage of small business to dealing with multimedia demands of the modern newsroom. Reporters will, among other things, get the opportunity to see how Census data can boost the authority of their coverage and learn interviewing tips from an FBI expert.

The conference will also offer a chance to see how America’s West Coast influences the globe. Of course, there will be Hollywood discussions. Plus, panel talks about how So Cal designers are changing everything from athletic gear to automobiles.
