What I’m bringing to the ACFW Conference

Captain's Log, Stardate 07.08.2010

The highlight of my year is always the ACFW conference in September. It’s my favorite conference for so many reasons, some of which are:

1) the friends I get to see there
2) the industry professionals I get to meet
3) the workshops
4) the nice hotel (I am SO not a “roughing it” girl. I need room service.)

I’m terrible at forgetting what to bring every year, so this year I figured I’d make a list. And I also thought it might be a useful list for other people who might be going to conference, too (not just the ACFW conference, but any writer’s conference).

So here goes, in no particular order:

1) business cards and/or bookmarks. For me, bookmarks are usually easier.

2) A one-sheet of my latest proposal. Dineen Miller did a great blog series on One-Sheets: http://www.acfw.com/blog/?p=137, http://www.acfw.com/blog/?p=170, http://www.acfw.com/blog/?p=203, http://www.acfw.com/blog/?p=248, and examples here: http://www.dineenmiller.com/DineenMiller/D.G.G…
