EPIC (The Electronically Published Internet Connection) is NOLA bound. What is NOLA? NOLA is New Orleans, LA. And EPICon will be held there March 4-7, 2010. To register for the convention, please visit http://www.msplinks.com/MDFodHRwOi8vd3d3LmVwaWMtY29uZmVyZW5jZS5jb20v Oh, and do they have some names teaching this year…Holly Jacobs, Debra Dixon, Deidre Knight, CT Adams, and even a forensic pathologist teaching 2 hours of class on the subject!
To boot, if you’re an EPIC member, early registration is only $195 and $225 for non-members. That includes…
Thursday Night Mixer
Friday: Buffet Breakfast and Keynote luncheon
Saturday: Buffet Breakfast, luncheon, and awards banquet
The hotel rooms are discounted for the convention, as well. You have to mention the conference.
One more note. Membership in EPIC is $30 per year anyway. If you join EPIC while you sign up for the convention, you still pay $225 for the combination of member going to the convention and EPIC membership dues, but you get a year in EPIC to go along with it. That gets you $10 off all EPIC e-book contest entries, networking on the EPIC lists, calls for submissions, a built-in place to ask research questions, industry information, and more. So, you make out like a bear on that deal.
And you don’t want to miss the gala awards ceremony, where the new name for EPIC’s contest will be revealed this year.
