RAILROAD CONFERENCE WILL BE NEWSMAKER, SAY EDITORS

 WASHINGTON, July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The Association of Railway Communicators (ARC) will hold its 1993 conference Sept. 22-25 in Hyannis, Mass., at the Tara Hyannis Hotel & Resort. The theme of ARC's 71st annual conference is "Communicating Change in a Changing Industry."
 Several changing aspects of the rail industry comprise the conference program, including:
 -- The Clinton Administration role.
 -- Workforce diversity: gender and racial trends, implications.
 -- Forging intermodal partnerships.
 -- Public perception of the railroads.
 -- Unions and employee activism in the 90s.
 -- Total quality and communications.
 -- Economic performance and industry prospects.
 -- Journalists who work the "Railroad Beat."
 ARC President Stephen W. FitzGerald predicted, "By far, this conference will feature the most relevant and enlightening industry program in North America, in several years. With all our invited speakers confirmed, this conference will generate a gamut of story possibilities for rail industry editors and writers, and for the transportation writers who cover the industry." FitzGerald edits Locomotive Engineers Journal and The Locomotive Engineer Newsletter. (Editors: Regarding speakers, please see note at end.)
 Communications professionals from every major rail company, union and publication in the U.S. and Canada belong to ARC. Its members are responsible for more than 60 internal and external publications and other media, which reach an estimated combined audience of three million.
