I mentioned a little while back that I was co-chairing a Michigan regional of the HighEdWeb conference (opens new window) on May 20-21, 2013, at the University of Michigan-Flint (opens new window).

HighEdWeb Michigan is a conference designed for higher education communication and Web professionals—writers, marketers, designers, developers—who want to explore the unique Web issues facing colleges and universities.

As more of the campus moves towards implementing an integrated content strategy with ever growing properties, Web, digital signage, email, social media, video, etc. We encourage all Wayne State University faculty, staff, and students to consider taking advantage of this invaluable opportunity to meet colleagues from across the Midwest and learn how to approach the university website in a more effective manner.

The keynote presenter is Kristina Halvorson (opens new window). Halvorson is widely recognized as one of the most important voices in the realm of content strategy.
