Marcy Phelps, president of AIIP (Association of Independent Information Professionals), shared a few predictions with us in her video interview with Marydee Ojala the day before the official start of Online Information 2009. (You can view the interview in its entirety on this ITI blog.)
By Day 3 of the conference, Phelps reported that traffic was “brisk” in and out of the AIIP stand on the exhibition floor. “People have been coming in and taking AIIP application forms to join the organization, but there were even more people coming in and taking forms to hire AIIP members,” she says, adding that her supply of forms was actually running low. “This is a good time to be an AIIP member,” she says. “Independent info pros are in demand.”
The AIIP membership consists of more than 500 business owners from more than 20 countries around the world.
