Upcoming Publishing/Graphic Design SIG Google Hangout

Nov. 10, 2014, 4 p.m. EST (3 p.m. CST; 2 p.m. MST; 1 p.m. PST) Print-on-demand, eBooks and the future of print: Moderator: Ana Henke

This one-hour session will be limited to 10 logged-in participants and will NOT be recorded. Feel free to ask colleagues in your department to join you using one computer. This will help boost the number of participants. This session will be an informal, moderated discussion. We chose this broad topic based on responses to our recent survey. Thanks to those that responded! We have also gone ahead a forwarded the survey results to ACE Leadership.

This is our SIG’s first experiment with using hangouts for professional development. Let’s give it a try and learn together. If you are interested in moderating future hangouts, please contact us!

NOTE: You will need a Google+ account to access the hangout. The link above allows members to request an invitation to the Hangout. An invitation does not guarantee you access to the session. On the day of the Hangout, it will be first come first serve.
