Overheard: #ASJA 2019
from By Sandra Gurvis
With a packed house, a diverse and intriguing lineup of speakers, a cool, intimate hotel near the new One World Trade Center building and the 9/11 Tribute Museum and a new app that helped link it all together, #ASJA2019 was a resounding success.
“This conference felt more connected, contained, and up-to-the-minute than previous conferences,” says ASJA member Jennie Helderman (@jenniehelderman). “The smaller hotel offered much opportunity for interaction — we met other members coming and going, we ate breakfast together, all rode the same elevators and so forth. The app gets stars for linking people while providing essential and helpful information.”
And don’t even get her started on the speakers. “The ‘State of Freelancing’ keynote was exactly what we need to hear,” Helderman continues. “It’s essential information for us individually and was right on target,” also lending strength to ASJA’s position as the voice of freelancers. “The issues addressed by these speakers are central to our purpose."
