The Early Bird Gets a Discount on the Boot Camp Registrations

Don't miss your opportunity to reserve your spot for the 2006 Magazine Boot Camp at the early bird rate. To make it easier for our attendees to sign up for the event, we will be accepting credit card registrations this year. Please write the cardholder's name, type of card, expiration date, and amount to be charged on the registration form and sign it. You can then fax it to Amy Fischbach, KC ASBPE president, at 913-514-6611.

We will be accepting early bird registrations until 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 10. Send in your registration form and check by that date to receive the special pricing of $70 for members and $85 for non-members, or fax your form to Amy if you are using a credit card payment.
As a special bonus, the companies that sign up five or more employees will only have to pay the member rate for all of their attendees.

The event is sponsored by the Kansas City chapter of the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE) and the Missouri Association of Publications (MAP).
We will be offering a magazine design critique during the networking breaks and a magazine swap this year, so remember to bring copies of your magazine to the workshop.
