Two big developments over the last couple of weeks:
• Southern speechwriters sort selves. To the regional speechwriting roundtables in Washington, New York and Houston, please add the Executive Communications Council of the South. Cofounders Steve Soltis, exec comms director at Coca-Cola and Molly Epstein, associate professor of management communication at Emory University, are hosting their first meeting is Mar. 29, at Emory. To attend or to learn more about the group’s aims, get in touch with Epstein: [email protected].
• All hail the Silicon Valley Speechwriters Roundtable! The first meeting is open to “anyone who currently works with Silicon Valley companies or who might like to do so,” according to organizer Ian Griffin. It’s being held via teleconference, “where we’ll introduce ourselves and decide on a schedule for future meetings,” Griffin says. On Tuesday, Mar. 19 at 11:45 Pacific, dial into 760-569-9000; the passcode is 891641#.
