Normally, I wouldn’t post this kind of stuff, but since I’m going to be speaking at Promax/BDA this summer, I figured I have an obligation to help out. Here’s a slightly edited chunk of an email I recently received:
“BDA is putting together a focus group that will take place on Tuesday, May 2 from 5:45 PM Ã¢â‚¬” 8:00 PM at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel, 1755 N. Highland Ave., Los Angeles. Sandwiches and refreshments will be served.
In addition to the focus group for BDA members, we are holding a second focus group that evening for junior designers who are not currently BDA members in order to learn what they might look for in a design trade association. That meeting will take place on the same evening from 8:15 to 9:45 PM at the Renaissance Hotel. If there is a junior member of your staff who you think might be interested in attending, please either forward this call or give that personÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s contact information.
The group will be led by Steve Seidmon who comes to this endeavor with many years of experience leading media-related research.
If you would like to participate, please contact Linda Antwi at 310.789.1553 or firstname.lastname@example.org.”
