Forms Professionals: Increasing Automation
Lisa Lee, CEBS, FLMI
A while back I wrote that forms professionals are advocates for customers and for efficiency within our organizations. This positions us well to be advocates for increasing automation, as well, as voiced by the keynote speaker at symposium, John Knightly, the VP Enterprise Marketing for Adobe. I’d like to use this article to recap some of his comments. We’ve all witnessed the overall trend to move from paper toward digital. It is a continuum.

Master Series: Best Practices in Forms Management
Every organization has a forms management function. Regardless of the size and structure of your organization this function may be formal and managed, or informal and mismanaged, but it certainly exists. How do you ensure that your forms management function is adhering to recommended best practices for the industry? You begin by registering for the latest master series on the subject presented by Ray Killam.

Ever Considered Being a Speaker?
The Program Council wants you to be a part of the educational opportunities. Yes, you can attend but have you ever considered being a presenter? By presenting to your peers, you will contribute to the forms profession, establish your expertise in your field and increase your visibility and credibility. Persons selected to present at Symposium receive a complementary registration (excluding the meals and events package.) Similar freebies are available to presentations at other events such as Institutes, Master Series webinars and Forms and Technology Conference. Complete details are found on the Presentation Application. We need to hear from you by August, so get thinking so you can start speaking!

Bill Hill, CFC, CFSP
There was excitement, in fact the most excitement I had seen at the CFSP table during the Symposium sponsor show and luncheon for years. Attendees were enthusiastic in learning about the exam and the process to obtain a CFSP certification.
