Sourcing News and Knowledge – Beyond the Obvious

Editor's Corner, SourceCon

The NEW Newsletter

No comments

Happy 2010 everyone! The start of a new year leads many to make resolutions, to draw a line in the sand, and to restart or renew. 2009 was a year of big changes for SourceCon. With new ownership, The Source decided to take a break and re-evaluate how we’re planning to move forward with content. Starting this month, we are going to be doing things a little differently. We taken the last few months to draw our line in the sand and start fresh.

We have invited a few people to become regular contributors to The Source. Over the next month, we’ll be introducing you to these folks who will become familiar faces on the newsletter. Make sure to check out our Contributors page to get to know them, and we’ll be posting little featurettes on these people in the coming weeks. These individuals were hand-selected because of their unique knowledge of sourcing and research, as well as their varying professional backgrounds and the respect they’ve earned through our community. We really feel we’ve created an eclectic group of authors who will bring great information and thought process to The Source for our readers.

Thank you for your support, and we hope to see you in a couple of months in San Diego at SourceCon 2010!
