This morning I registered our group with O'Reilly's User Group Association Program. There are several benefits they offer. Read my interaction in typical email reply reverse order.
Nice to meet you. I'll send you a couple of copies of our new book.
We've also got a Drupal book forum here:
And a webcast we had recently here:
We don't print catalogs anymore. They're usually out of date soon as
we do. But I do have some other items I can send you.
Dear Marsee Henon,
I recently moved to Iowa.
I am the Leader of the Iowa Drupal Users Group.
I also founded the Ann Arbor Drupal Users Group.
I have participated in Apress's and Packt's UG programs.
I have reviewed Drupal books for both publishers. - http://www.amazon.com/gp/cdp/member-reviews/A2KGJJNUWI685X/ref=cm_pdp_re...
I would like to review "Using Drupal". - http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596515805
In addition, I'm currently running a member drive. I humbly request
6 copies of "Using Drupal". These books would go far to attracting
and educating new members.
See how I have used books from Apress and Packt in the past.
Do you have any other swag I can use as bait for new members?
I would like to distribute O'Reilly catalogs at our meetings as well.
Thanks for your consideration and support of our group.
