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.

The Forms and Technology Conference, BFMA's premier fall event, will be held at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Chicago, IL on September 13 - 15. The Conference is co-located with Document Strategy Forum and your badge will allow you to attend any of the sessions being offered at these two conferences as well as visit the exhibit hall at no additional cost.

More Master Series Coming!

We have just completed another successful Master Series. Beginning in August and through the remainder of 2010, we will offer the Master Series webinars as individual sessions on various topics of interest and feature presentations from Symposium 2010. Instead of a series of sessions, you can pick and choose sessions that are of the most interest to you.

Watch The Website for Webinar Details

Speakers and Instructors Apply Now!

Program Council is planning the 2011 educational programs and we expect the offering to be targeted and information-packed. We are seeking persons willing to contribute their expertise on a wide variety of forms-related topics. If you have a particular subject that you believe would be of interest to your peers and would like the opportunity to present, either in person or online, complete a Presentation Application.

Back to Work and Advance Your Knowledge

Bill Hill, CFC, CFSP
FSCB Chair

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.
