For those of you who subscribe to the Association eLearning blog, you've noticed it's been very quiet for the last year. I'm finally back from some time off and I'm really excited to be re-engaged in the world of eLearning - although I didn't go far.
In October 2007, I made the strategic decision to merge my consulting business with another, larger firm in Arlington, VA. The new company is called Kadix Systems. I'll be maintaining the association work I've been doing for the last seven years, but I am also taking on some new responsibilities in the federal space. So far it's been great. I'm loving the fact that both associations and federal agencies are mission focused. While the procurement process is night and day, the work is challenging and rewarding.
With this change comes new contact information. You can still reach me at AmySmith@amysmithconsulting.com or at ASmith@kadix.com. My cell phone is (571) 236-8959 and my office is (703) 236-0919.
Some other new announcements - In August of 2007 I helped co-author the Always Done it That Way book. We have now sold about 1,100 copies to date and have recently added new postings on the blog. A second version is coming out in 2008. It's available for purchase at Lulu.com and on Amazon.
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone in the association community again. Don't hesitate to contact me.
