Maintenance Phase: Maintaining Your Program’s Style Guide | Elizabeth Morris Lakes

As an editor among subject matter experts, maintaining your team’s style guide can be a careful balance between acknowledging usage and style of terms within your organization’s field and having easily applicable and understandable guidelines that still ring true to the clarity and precision we strive for as editors. This session will cover how to find your champions; distribute the power of guideline creation to foster buy-in; create and update style guidelines that everyone can agree on; and communicate these changes to your team.
