  2019 AMWA-MAC Regional Conference

Friday, March 8, 2019, 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM 

Afternoon Workshop 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM 

This is the place to get your educational and networking needs met.

Join us! This year's conference will be better than ever with two keynote speakers, Lori De Milto, M.J. and Stephen W. Gutkin, six roundtables on timely topics for all medical communicators, and ample networking opportunities. There will also be a special afternoon workshop* led by Ms. De Milto.

If you specialize in scientific publications or want to learn more, don't miss Mr. Gutkin's presentation on the strengths and limitations of clinical study design and how medical writers can ensure fair balance in medical communications. Learn how to "Prove It, Improve It, and Enhance It" from this subject matter expert.

If you're an introvert, like many writers, you won't want to miss Ms. De Milto's keynote: Networking for Introverts: How to Get More Results with Less Stress. Who you know is as important as what you know, and she'll explain how to build your network effectively with less stress.

In her afternoon workshop, How to Stand Out in a Sea of Freelancers with Your Brand, Ms. De Milto will teach participants the key ingredients in a freelancer's brand and help them develop their brands to stand out from the competition.

Find the full conference details in our conference brochure, which is also available on the AMWA-MAC website.

* Workshop available for an additional fee.
