EPICon

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.

The convention in NO sounds fab. I'm still hoping to be able to come.

You're an angel for heading this up this year.

I'm a very tired angel. I'm hoping everyone can come up with the cash to come next year. It would be very upsetting to do all this work and no one show up. LOL
