For the last few months, we’ve been working with Point Five, the award-winning New York City–based design studio that designs the magazine
you’re holding, to create a more accessible, easy-to-read online platform
for Convene. And it’s now live at pcmaconvene.org, where we’ll be posting new stories and content five days a week.
Another change: Our former blog at pcmaconvene.com, where we
have been writing since 2010, has been blended into our new platform.
Our intention in bringing it all together is to make Convene easier for
you to find in the broadest sense of the word — our online content
will be in one place, not two. But we also wanted to make it easy to find
content by interest, so on pcmaconvene.org you’ll find channels for everything from global meetings to risk management, and a category we call Big
Ideas, for those stories that widen the lens beyond the meetings industry.
We hope to surprise you, make you think, and bring you information
that helps you do your job more effectively. And here’s hoping the new
platform also will bring more ease and pleasure to reading Convene.
