All of the above!
Still, we are extremely excited for our first in-person conference since the pandemic, the Society for Scholarly Publishing Annual Meeting, taking place in Chicago June 1-3, 2022. SSP has always been our biggest event of the year, and this year’s meeting feels especially like a homecoming.
Silverchair is highly involved in SSP, with volunteers on the Annual Meeting, Marketing, Education, and New Directions committees, and frequent involvement in other SSP events and causes. And as of this month, Silverchair’s Director of Product Strategy, Hannah Heckner, is now on the SSP Board of Directors! In her vision statement, Hannah discussed the opportunities that abound when the stakeholders within our ecosystem can work together with their common goals and their end users’ needs in mind.
We’re excited to celebrate her appointment, the many new partnerships we’ve kicked off over the last two years, and the ability to clink a physical glass together at SSP. That’s why we’re hosting a Cocktail Reception in our booth in the exhibit hall (#511) on Thursday during the Networking Reception (5:45-7pm). Stop by then, or anytime during exhibit hours, to say hello, catch up, and grab some swag.
Here’s where else you can find us:
