SABEW convention is less than three months away

February 15, 2006

Now’s a good time to make plans to attend SABEW’s annual conference. It will be held Sunday, April 30, to Tuesday, May 2, in Minneapolis-St. Paul, which is at its northern best in the spring.

Among the topics:
*How to solve thorny convergence issues;
*How to cover health care as a business;
*Proven methods to deepen your reporting and sharpen your writing;
*Tips on dealing with the chronic bugaboo of “resource challenges.”

As usual, there’ll be a panel of winners of the “Best in Business” awards to explain How They Did It. And perhaps best of all, there will be plenty of time to see old friends, meet new ones, and perhaps make that crucial contact that could boost your career.

For those members seeking additional training while in the Twin Cities, SABEW is planning to co-sponsor a pair of intense, day-long boot camps. One will be for editors, the other for reporters. Both will be held Saturday, April 29, the day before the annual conference officially begins.

The venues: The elegant Hyatt Regency Minneapolis Hotel in downtown Minneapolis. The Best in Business awards presentation will be held at the Science Museum of Minnesota in downtown St. Paul.

Remember, the earlier the better for air fares. And the early bird discount at the Hyatt Regency ends March 28, after which rates go up.

Call 800-233-1234 or 612-370-1234 for hotel reservations.
