    MedComms Networking - 21 March 2017


    Yesterday we had another excellent meeting here in Macclesfield with the Sponsors of MedComms Networking. At least, I thought it was useful. We'll find out over the next couple of weeks what the Sponsors think. The way the Sponsorship deal currently works means they now have to sign up to continue supporting us beyond the end of this month. So keep an eye on this page to see who's in and who's not. It's a simple fact that without their support none of all this would be possible so we should make this another #HugASponsor week. If anyone else wants to join their number please give me a shout. The more support we get the more we can achieve. It's that simple.

    We're back in Macclesfield today for another in this month's series of Lunch and Learns, and later today a group will meet in San Francisco as well. Sadly I can't be everywhere but I'm sure it'll all work well for everyone, as it did in New York last week. Many thanks to Concise for supporting these events and hopefully we're seeing the beginnings of MedComms Networking activity in the US. There's lots more coming, folks.

    Importantly, we've now posted the 2017, edition of our annual careers guide, From academic to medical writer, A guide to getting started in medical communications. A record quick time to publication and a record number of agencies advertising in the guide. Many thanks to all involved. If your agency isn't included... well, maybe you'll join in next time. Along with the other resources at the careers guide does a magnificent job promoting careers in this business. Please share it with anyone who might be interested.

    If you want printed copies then drop me a line and I'll send them on, free of charge while stocks last.

    Meanwhile, last week the RightsLink Permissions Roundtable with Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) worked well and slides are available on the web page. The plan is they'll run a free webinar for the wider community very soon, based on the input last week. We'll pass on word as soon as have a date. As an aside, for some of you, apparently the UK-based Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) have been working with the CCC and have recently updated their licenses and, I'm told, ironed out a lot of the historical problems so it's maybe worth checking out their new licences for Pharmaceutical and Medical Companies.

    And looking ahead, we've a final line-up now for our next Brunch Club event in Oxford on 5 April. We'll hear about the new AMWA-EMWA-ISMPP Joint Position Statement on the Role of Professional Medical Writers from Chris Winchester, Professional medical writing: following the 'value' evidence trail from Paul Farrow, Effective communication in the age of social media for MedComms specialists from Saundra Hemmings and Strategic communications planning and the role of the MedComms agency from Adrian Brown. Please join us, or sit back and wait to view the webcasts at - enjoy.
