Annual ‘Who Cares? Why Bother’ conference held on Wednesday and Thursday

The "Who Cares? Why Bother? Writing for Real People" conference runs Feb. 6-7 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. at the Wisner-Bottrall Applied Technology Center.

Grand Rapids Community College is hosting its annual “Who Cares? Why Bother? Real Writing for Real People” conference this Wednesday and Thursday in the Wisner-Bottrall Applied Technology Center, located at 151 Fountain St. NE.

Wednesday’s presentations, originally scheduled from 9:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., have been delayed until 11 a.m. due to GRCC’s delay on Wednesday due to the icy conditions. Presentations starting at 11 a.m. or later on Wednesday will go on as regularly scheduled. Thursday’s conference will be held during the normal time from 9:30 a.m. to 4:15 p.m., unless there is a school delay or closing.

The conference is open to the public and there is no fee to attend any of the presentations. Professionals from different fields are on deck to present how they use writing in their fields to communicate clearly. Representatives from Grand Valley State University, Gordon Food Service and Williams Group as well as GRCC professors from the Biology and English Department are scheduled to present on both days.

Registration is not required for any of the presentations and the conference is free to anyone in the community. For a full list of presentations and scheduled times, visit GRCC’s “Who Cares? Why Bother?” page.
