New book out: Tweeting Meeting -- Social Media for Events
This book on social media for events is a collaborative venture organized by Maarten Vanneste with multiple authors including: 
Corbin Ball, Shuli Golovinski, Je? Hurt, Ruud Janssen, Susan Brower, Frank Martin Hein, Jessica Levin, Jan Vermeiren, Je?  Rasco, and Dennis von Ferenczy. I am interviewed about my chapter in this book:

Corbin is a writer/editor for the Convention Industry Council Manual and Glossary, 7th Edition, one of the principal textbooks for the meetings industry.
The CIC Manual is a compilation of specific information that explains how to organize, plan, publicize, manage and budget meetings and conventions of any size. The concise, broad base of knowledge makes it the primary reference book of the industry. Written by some of the leading meeting and convention professionals from associations, corporations and the hospitality industry, this manual is an important step-by-step guide for anyone involved in planning, servicing or hosting a meeting. It is also a primary study aid for the Certified Meeting Professional (CMP) examination.

This edition is reorganized according to the five study modules and the 27 meeting management functions referenced in the CMP Examination Blueprint. The 7th Edition format provides user-friendly features, such as content lists at the beginning of the chapters, extensive subheadings and bullet lists. These features enable the reader to quickly locate the information they need. The manual also features technology tips, issues forums, reproducible checklists and industry resources throughout the chapters. More than 65 meeting industry volunteers participated in this project by reviewing, updating and rewriting chapters, and contributing new content.
Corbin wrote "Chapter 9: Computer Applications," rewrote "Chapter 24: Registration" and reviewed other chapters as well.
Corbin's articles and have have been published in more than 100 national and international magazines including the following:
