Kick Open the Doors at our first all-members board meeting, where you'll hear the latest on what's ahead for MI-SinC in 2018 and have the opportunity to participate in brainstorming its future and volunteering for roles in its development.

The brief meeting will be followed by a panel discussion where authors from every side of publishing, from national best sellers to successful indies, will discuss their experiences and answer questions.

Following the panel will be a fun social activity--Cafe Conversations, where various topics will be discussed for ten minutes among those seated at one of four tables. At the end of that time, you will move to a different table for a different discussion. Details will be provided at the session.

To wrap up the day, there will be refreshments and informal discussions--a great opportunity for you to meet other MI-SinC members.

NOTE: This is a members-only event. Registration begins at 12:30
