The Indiana Chapter July 2010 Newsletter A Day at the Zoo 2010 Indiana-Ohio Valley Chapter Conference On April 10th, a warm spring day with birds chirping and flowers blooming, the 2010 Indiana-Ohio Valley Chapter Conference took place at the Indianapolis Zoo. Approximately 50 people registered for the conference, a record high in the Indiana chapterâ€&#x;s history. This joint conference offered 4 AMWA Credit Workshops led by Susan Aiello and Art Gertel, as well as 4 Career Enrichment Open Sessions, which were new to the chapter conference and were offered free to conference registrants. Besides these educational events, the participants also enjoyed networking with fellow medical writers and editors, visiting sponsorsâ€&#x; exhibition desks, and interacting with animals at the Zoo during the lunch break. In this newsletter, you will find an interview with Anne Marie Wolka, PhD, one of the meeting organizers, who shared her story of volunteering for the chapter conference. You can also read the summaries of the four Career Enrichment Open Sessions if you were not able to attend them at the conference. These summaries were written by our volunteers Margaret Perry, MA, CGC, Kristin Bullok, PhD, Julie Beyrer, MTSC and Connie Ross, BS, and were edited by Noreen Pierle. I hope you enjoy this issue of the newsletter! Qing Zhou, PhD Newsletter Editor, AMWA Indiana Chapter
