The ISC/SCI is thrilled to announce that our next annual conference is taking place from the comfort of your home from May 27 to 29, 2021. The theme is “Indexing Unlimited”.
The conference sessions will cover a variety of topics to help you improve your indexing practice and make your business thrive.
One new feature is designed especially for new indexers. The online Fireside Chat will give you the opportunity to talk in a group setting with an experienced indexer on your transition from student to practicing indexer.
Of course, networking has always been an important component of the annual conference. The Conference Committee wants you to know that this year will be no different. Plans are in the works for activities that will help you meet new friends and catch with up with old ones.
New indexers can register for the Fireside Chat hosted by Stephen Ullstrom and Margaret DeBoer. This group session is your opportunity to ask your burning questions on transitioning from student to practicing indexer.

Sessions will be recorded and made available to all registered attendees.
