To develop and recognize professional skills and facilitate networking and information sharing among ACE members who work in the editorial aspects of or graphic design of print or electronic publications.
Approximately 20 people attended. We handed out ACE C&A Bronze and Silver awards, and members shared information about their winning entries. We then talked about professional development possibilities for the coming year.
We have polled our SIG membership, asking for topics they'd like to see us cover through SIG professional development. So far we have had only a couple of responses. If enough people are interested in a topic, we'll find a way to make it happen.
We are already looking into the possibility of a joint webinar with the Electronic Media and Photography SIG. Once we've figured out more of the details, we'll post the ideas on our Facebook page to get feedback before we make a final decision on what might go into that session.
We have sent one e-newsletter so far in August. Another one will be sent in September. The e-newsletters will go out every month or two. We also have a Publishing group on Facebook and post some things there.
We have checked it to make sure the officer information is up-to-date, but have made no changes.
None to report, currently.
We will call for entries through our e-newsletter and our Facebook page. If we get no nominations that way, we will use our listserve to send an additional call.
We will use our e-newsletter to encourage members to submit.
We have no additional issues to bring to the Board at this time.
