Forms Professionals: Consultants
Lisa Lee, CEBS, FLMI
Wouldn’t it be great if our customers always knew what their requirements were? And if the solutions were obvious? But, then, life wouldn’t be very interesting, would it? In the real world, all kinds of business problems are presented, other stakeholders, requirements and constraints must be considered, and the right solution for a particular situation may or may not be especially clear.
Partner With Customers To Meet Their Needs
One Badge. Two Conferences.

Back to Work and Advance Your Knowledge
Bill Hill, CFC, CFSP
Ah, the beginning of July, when both USA and Canada celebrate a national holiday. These patriotic days are a big distraction, often a needed distraction, from work. We all love our forms program, but the politics of office life can be challenging. Fortunately, I am past that, but during my career I really enjoyed going into a project to offer forms solutions, many times making the project viable and/or user friendly.
