The Association for Documentary Editing will host a one-day Career Skills Workshop on Project Management on Thursday, 24 July 2014, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Seelbach Hilton in Louisville, Kentucky. Registration is now open. The workshop is offered in conjunction with the ADE’s 36th Annual Meeting, which is to be held 24–26 July at the same venue.
The 2014 ADE Career Skills Workshop on Project Management is intended for experienced documentary editors who are or aspire to be project directors. The workshop will provide intensive training in defining, planning, organizing, and administering editing projects. The immediate aim of the workshop is to instruct project directors in the fundamentals of project management so that they can apply its best practices in their work. Facing myriad responsibilities as well as shifting expectations, documentary editors who serve as project directors need to be as skilled in management as editing. The ultimate goal of the workshop is to improve how editing projects operate.
The instructor of the workshop will be Steven Hoskins, longtime project director of the American Association for State and Local History’s Project Management for History Professionals Program. Hoskins holds a Ph.D. in public history from Middle Tennessee State University and works with historical institutions and organizations around the country as a consultant in project management, strategic planning, community outreach, and other areas.
Participation in the workshop is limited to 20 people, with enrollment on a first come, first served basis. Admission costs $100, which is due at the time of registration and is nonrefundable.
