NASMM Now Accepting Submissions for Ignite 2017!
Consider being part of an innovative and exciting learning format — NASMM 2017 Ignite — a showcase of five-minute talks that might be bold, possibly brash, maybe even brilliant — but never boring! It's the learning format that's fast, fun, and focused where each speaker gets 20 slides, auto-advancing every 15 seconds, for 5 minutes total.

The international Ignite motto is "enlighten us, but make it quick!" Thus, Ignite is storytelling more than presenting. Given five minutes to speak with brief visual aides, what would you share with other SMMs? What would you most like to learn from your colleagues? Would you tell a humorous story? Teach a hack? Explain your passion for an unusual hobby?

NASMM 2017 Ignite is taking place in Indianapolis on Sunday, March 12. Are you up for the challenge?

What Do You Mean By 'Old?'
Ageism cuts both ways, discriminating against both the so-called 'young' and 'old,' and turns these two seemingly innocuous words into pejoratives. When 'young' and 'old' are used colloquially rather than as they were intended (as comparative markers of time) they become profane.
