The Indiana Chapter March 2011 Newsletter UPCOMING EVENTS: FROM THE PRESIDENT, AMWA INDIANA CHAPTER March 2011 Dear Chapter Members: It is my great pleasure to pen my second letter to members of AMWA Indiana Chapter. Over the next 4 months, we will bring to your attention issues and events that we have planned for the members. Since 2011, the Chapter has organized three networking events. Two events were held at the Milano Inn Restaurant: a lunch only on 21 Jan with 10 members, and a lunch with a speaker on 25 Feb with 11 members. Our speaker, Mr. Brad Maurer, a corporate business attorney with Baker & Daniels LLP in Indianapolis, gave interesting information on Intellectual Properties such as trademarks, contracts, and copyright (see the article on Page 2). The third networking event took place on March 21 at the Claddagh Irish Pub in Indianapolis, where 8 members enjoyed dinner on a warm spring night. Upcoming chapter events include a meeting at the RuthLilly Medical Library at IUPUI scheduled on April 1 (see the announcement on the right) and an event at the Indianapolis Zoo in May/June. Lastly, a dinner is planned in June/July at Traders Point Creamery in Zionsville. Please remember to register for the Indiana-Ohio Valley chapter conference to be held on April 29-30 at the Creekside Conference & Event Center in Gahanna, OH. For more details on the conferences, visit the website: http://www.indianaohiovalleyconference.blogspot.com/. We will continue to expand the global outreach by forging strong relationships with other AMWA chapters in the country. I’ll work with the Officers so that we may take advantage of the new technologies and modes of communication to spread our medical writing/editing skills to a broader public. Visit the Chapter website at: http://www.hoosieramwa.org/. Till next time, I hope to see you at one of the Chapter’s exciting events. Pam McClelland, PhD, President AMWA Indiana Chapter
