I had the pleasure of interviewing Jen McClure, executive director of the Society for New Communications Research (SNCR). Jen discusses the upcoming New Comm Forum being held in Santa Rosa, California on April 22 – 25, with information on registering, the top panels to attend, and what “newbies” can expect from the experience.
I am a fan of SNCR events, as I wrote a piece wondering why there weren’t more “AP” social media events aimed at power users looking to gain more in depth social media knowledge. Events like New Comm Forum are the perfect opportunity for that. Jen gives a complete rundown of what to expect from this year’s event, and offers a $100 dollar discount code to enter when registering. She also gives her thoughts on the debate surrounding live-blogging events, and the process of selecting SNCR Fellows–many of whom will be presenting at New Comm Forum.
