Well, once again, it's ILUG here with more fun stuff for your perusal.
Apparently, O'Reilly has a programme for us! Below is the blurb;
basically, in return for a logo (they're really not that bad!) on the
website, we get all kinds of cool stuff.
Does anyone have any objections to us signing up for this? Anyone
think we should? It's your LUG - tell us what you want!
The Secretary =)
The O'Reilly User Group Programme is an alliance we've developed to
support established user groups. (Please see our requirements below.)
We share information and interact frequently with groups. And we
provide benefits to groups, too.
The object of O'Reilly's User Group Programme is to foster
relationships with technical communities that--in addition to meeting
regularly--troubleshoot, write product reviews, and share knowledge
through newsletters or Web sites.
O'Reilly has formed relationships with user groups across the globe,
and we're honored to be a part of this unique technical community.
User groups are volunteer, not-for-profit organizations, and O'Reilly
is pleased to help these groups by providing member benefits that
· Review copies of O'Reilly products - your reviews should be
published on your site or newsletter but also why not send them to
amazon.co.uk, slash dot or any other online sites of your choice?
· 30% discount on all O'Reilly products. Should you wish to give
your members the opportunity to purchase our books at 30% discount, we
will need to set up an account for the group. Each member will then be
able to quote the account number and ring/fax/email our warehouse with
their credit card ready. They will also need to specify what type of
dispatch they want since they will need to pay for it.
· Donations of books and other promo items
· Speaking engagements with O'Reilly authors when possible
· Electronic Newsletter
· Printed catalogues
Groups registering for the O'Reilly User Group Program should have:
· Membership of 5 or more people
· Regular newsletter or user group Web site for shared information
We also would like you to add our user group logo to your site see
