This summer, we're happy (and lucky!) to have six interns hailing from two different universities: the University of Michigan in our hometown of Ann Arbor, and Eastern Michigan University which is just next door  in Ypsilanti .

All six of our interns are Michigan natives. Four of them are Computer Science majors, while the other two are focused on Business Administration and Journalism, respectively. 

Though they are just starting their careers, they bring a wide range of experiences and interests to the table. Read on to learn more about each of them (from left to right as pictured).

"Think Scholarly, Act Like a Shoemaker"

by Cindy Twiss

How's that for an intriguing title? That was the name of our Executive Director of Clients & Products,  Mona Hidayet 's presentation at The Magazine Innovation Center's  ACT (Amplify, Clarify and Testify) 8  conference in Oxford, Mississippi. This year's conference was themed "Print Proud, Digital Smart," was led by Mr. Magazine himself, Dr. Samir Husni. The audience comprised thought leaders in publishing, marketing, printing, advertising, and distribution, and Mona encouraged them to look to the Scientific, Technical, and Medical (STM) sector for inspiration. She asserted that STM publishers are more effective than non-scholarly publishers when it comes to balancing their print and digital portfolios for three key reasons:

1)  Digital Content  - STM content is time-(not issue-) based. Digital content is a separate product, not the same print data in another format. Data is semantically searchable, making data available for purchase by subject, segment, or collection and allows for true print and digital bundles. The scholarly structure also makes digital content more easily monetized.

Conference and Trade Show Highlights 
by Dan Heffernan

I just returned from my 3rd conference/trade show in 4 weeks. There were 3 more that others on my team attended during this same time. June is the busiest month of the year for conferences & trade shows---by far!

Two of the trade shows I attended were focused on membership associations: AMS Fest in Chicago and Society Street in London. As a showcase company at AMS Fest (AMS = Association Management System), we were given 2 opportunities to demonstrate our software to membership organizations shopping for an AMS. This is a great event---well-organized, effective, and informative. 

One of my favorite sessions was one where 3 experts from different consulting firms sat on a panel and fielded questions about how to implement a new AMS.
