I congratulate you on taking the chance with the forum. As you can see, communications needed this. Although I just found out about this, I look forward to possibly attending next years forum.

Guillaume du Gardier

Congratulations my dear friend, I am very happy for you, you made it great, I'll never forget the time we've been working together on the first edition of NewCommForum, wish you the best for the next edition !

Mason Cole

However you did it, you did a great job. I loved the event. Wish I'd been to the first one, too.

Hi all -

Well, I am also finally feeling almost caught up after the Forum, and am - like Elizabeth - stunned, humbled and honored by the many positive blog posts, emails, podcasts, video blogging and comments via the Buzzaphone ( - thanks Matt Galloway! :-) What a great idea!

It's seems like life has been a whirlwind since October of 2004 when I suggested to Elizabeth that we "just launch our own conference." From that brazen decision sprang not only a promising and growing event, but also New Communications Review (formerly New Communications Blogzine) and the Society for New Communications Research. But most importantly, what has resulted over the last year-and-a-half are new relationships, new friendships, new colleagues and new opportunities for discussion, debate and collaboration with an ever-widening group of really interesting, experienced, smart and wonderful people. Thank you all so much for taking part in this and helping to make it a success. We appreciate your interest, help and support!

I really do want to thank all our sponsors who helped make this year's NewComm Forum possible: Eastwick Communications, Kontiki, Performancing, PRNewswire/ProfNet, qtags, Socialtext, Tekrati, Voce Communications and Stormhoek Wine. (Thanks to David Parmet for arranging that!)

Thanks also to all of our wonderful speakers and instructors - way too numerous to mention - but I think it was absolutely the best, most comprehensive group of apeakers anywhere!

Many thanks go out to Dan Karleen who did an incredible job live-blogging the event on NewComm Review, to Shel Holtz and Neville Hobson for recording an onsite version of For Immediate Release at the conference, and to Eric Schwartzman for all the onsite podcast interviews he conducted with our speakers, and to everyone else involved. I am sure I am forgetting someone, and I apologize!

I am very excited about the fact that New Communications Review and the New Communications Forum will be produced and managed by the Society for New Communications Research. For one thing, it will, as Elizabeth said, be nice to have more help! :-) But really, an event or a publication is only as strong as the content and participation that comprise it. Having the many fine minds that are a part of the SNCR working together will surely result in an even more valuable blog and conference. I look forward to seeing this evolution and hope you do as well.

I hope to see everyone again next year at NewComm Forum '07, if not before at our Fall Research Symposium & Awards Celebration, or at some other wondeful industry event!

(And, if you attended the Forum, and haven't completed the online survey yet, please go do it - we want to hear from you so we can make next year's event even better!)

Best wishes and many thanks to all -


Jen McClure

Oh yeah, I am an idiot and I did forget some people I wanted to thank - two of my dearest friends - both of whom I could not live without! Lisa Fletcher and, of course, my husband Dave. From early morning and late night meetings to help with marketing and promotion, website development, registration, carrying boxes, stuffing attendee kits, and more tasks than I could possibly list, they were there (as was sometimes my 4-year old who is a phenome when it comes to stamps, stickers or stuffing attendee kits!) Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Lisa Fletcher

Jen, you are very welcome. I think I speak on behalf of Elizabeth and everyone who follows your lead with the forum, the society and the review: It is a pleasure being a part of your vision and thank YOU for letting us be a part of your projects.
