O'Reilly supports DrupalCorn

Michael Hofmockel's picture

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.

HI Michael

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:
http://forums.oreilly.com/category/39/Using-Drupal/#

And a webcast we had recently here:
http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/e/1175

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 They're usually out of date soon as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.

Marsee

Dear Marsee Henon,

I recently moved to Iowa.
I am the Leader of the Iowa Drupal Users Group.
- http://groups.drupal.org/iowa

I also founded the Ann Arbor Drupal Users Group.
- http://groups.drupal.org/ann-arbor

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.

- http://groups.drupal.org/node/9230
- http://groups.drupal.org/node/12874

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.

Regards,

Michael Hofmockel

How much of a book discount will they give us? D books need to be Drupal related?

I'm not sure how much of a discount just yet...

Peter,

I'm not sure how much of a discount just yet (10-20% probably 35%!!! Just got off the phone with Marsee and she says its up to 40-50% off depending on the book). The discount should be on anything in their catalog.

I am pursuing a similar relationship with Apress and Packt as well. Apress offers 20% discount.

I'll let you know when I know more.
