A Jack of All Trades specializing in the hospitality, restaurant and tourism industries, I am a freelancing hipster. To keep this pitch short and sweet, like me, let's just say I'll take everything on – from Internet Marketing and SEO to web content writing and press release creation. I can set up a content management system in 10 minutes, traffic your online media campaigns through DART in a snap, and come up with copy that will make you smile. I drink more coffee than is healthy for any human being and I'm available 24 hours a day (weird side affect of the coffee habit)..

*** New 2009 IABC World Conference Dates

The dates for IABC's 2009 World Conference have been changed to 7-10 June. The change was prompted by a generous offer to IABC by the Marriott San Francisco that will help offset budget increases and keep costs competitive. IABC is also rebranding its international conference to the IABC World Conference to better reflect the program's global emphasis. The World Conference program and registration will be online in December 2008 with the lowest registration rates offered through 31 January.

Please update your chapter websites and any other listings to reflect these changes. We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco!

Ned,

Thanks for sharing your Order of the Arrow/ArrowCorps5 photos from Yellowstone and the Bridger-Teton region. If my heart had a home, it would be there…until winter comes. (Hey, there’s a reason I live in Arizona!)

Congratulations to you and your son for helping with these great service projects. The Forest Service and our beautiful park lands benefit from the dedication of scouts and their parents.
