As a full-time freelance magazine writer and book author I spend a lot of time alone - in the office, traveling and in remote locations. POMA through its Briefs, Business Conference and webinars offers me a very valuable means of staying in communications/networking with others in my field. The freelance lifestyle can cause a writer to become set-in-his-ways and stale without regular contact with other professionals.Freelance Communicator
I depend on POMA for much of that contact and it pays off with fresh ideas, new projects, a growing list of professional friends/contacts, writing award opportunities and continuing education. I can’t image a full-time outdoor communicator not being an active member of POMA. In a job that can cut one off from much of the world, POMA brings the outdoor world to you.
