That is mostly for StataCorp, but in terms of 

SJ
==

The Stata Journal would be delighted to receive
submissions of expository papers under this heading. 

Users' meetings
===============

I imagine that all organisers of users' meetings 
-- not just NASUG -- would be very interested in 
offers of such talks. That certainly applies to 
London and Boston, and presumably also to Berlin 
(if the programme is not yet full) and Adelaide. 

Notwithstanding that, as was underlined in some 
answers, the particular question had already been answered 
by an FAQ. Talks reach an audience, the SJ 
reaches its subscribers (and every serious Stata
user should naturally subscribe), but a FAQ is 
there on the net for everyone with a browser.
