November 2009

If you are registered for an upcoming E4H conference, you will receive a separate “things to know” email about a week before the event. 

It's Made Out of People!

Twitter's fancy new "lists" feature gives us a chance to create individual conference groups, so you can stay in touch with your new colleagues long after the hash tags have died.

We are compiling the older lists from memory, so let us know if we've forgotten anyone:


You can also find us on facebookflickr, tumblrUpcoming, and LinkedIn. And as always, send your questions to

Greetings <<First Name>>,

Fall is here, but we can't stop thinking about 2010! Here at E4H HQ we are building the schedule for next year, taking the feedback and suggestions we’ve gotten from you into account as we put together another roster of compelling, relevant conferences. But more about that later—here’s what’s in this issue of The Setlist:

Will You Be One of the 100 to Get In Control?

In Control Orlando Speakers

The In Control Cincinnati Web Design Workshop Conference was a huge success. One of the best compliments we received was from an attendee who they felt that they were being overserved throughout the two inspiration-packed days.

For 2010, we decided to take the show on the road. First stop: Orlando, Florida. In conjunction with AIGA Orlando, In Control will take place Feb. 22 & 23 at the Embassy Suites in the heart of Orlando’s Downtown Arts District.

We listened to your suggestions and added some new things we’d like to see too:

  • More hands-on examples and activities give you a chance to practice new skills right away.
  • More space and an all-inclusive location means more comfort and a more cohesive experience—Embassy Suites offers a discount to attendees who want to stay at the hotel.
  • Planned evening events allow you to unwind and network with your new colleagues in more casual settings.
While the surroundings may change, the formula for In Control hasn’t:
  • We have a great group of talented speakers.
  • Longer sessions allow you to dive more deeply into each subject.
  • Wrap-up sessions bring the day’s speakers together for follow-up questions and cross-pollination of the session material. 
  • The single-track conference format creates a shared experience among attendees.
  • Capping registration at 100 people creates a more intimate group and more opportunities for meaningful interaction.
  • A reasonably-priced registration that includes catered lunches and snacks makes In Control an exceptional value. 
Register soon! Early bird pricing ends November 8, 2009. If you are an AIGA member, you get an even better break on the price—contact your local chapter’s board for the discount code.

If you aren’t an AIGA member, use discount code INCSCHM to save an additional $50.

Just like we did in June, we are going to have a great time this February in Orlando—please join us!
