AMA Symposium: Twittering, Live Blogging and Interviewing

November 15th, 2008 Karine Joly 1 Comment

Just a quick post as I’m packing this morning for the AMA Symposium for Higher Education.

Karlyn Morissette and I will be live blogging/twittering as much as we can from the conference. We haven’t agreed on a hastag for Twitter yet, so feel free to follow me and I’ll make sure I let you know how to follow all the action from the conference attendees (although I’m not sure how active this crowd is going to be on Twitter).

While I’m scheduled to present a workshop about blogging tomorrow afternoon, Karlyn will give a presentation on integrated email marketing on Monday morning.

Her session promises to be a very interesting and useful, but if you’re not going to the conference, you can still register for Email Marketing 360 as Karlyn will present the first webinar and Carmella Manges has prepared a great presentation about email analytics and measurement for the second.

Besides the twittering and the blogging, I also plan to interview some of the attendees (more than 600 people will be at the conference) for my upcoming University Business column to be published earlier next year.

If you’ve read the news lately, you know that the economy isn’t very promising, some have already started to make adjustments and I’d like to find out how the higher ed marketing/communication community is coping with the bad economy.

Can’t make it to the conference, but have good tips, great ideas or strong opinion about the topic? Post a comment or email to get a chance to be featured in this article.

If you are at the conference, don’t be shy and come say hello, I look forward to meeting new faces.
