Hi all,

At BSDCon Europe I was talking with Josette Garcia, who's the marketing
manager for O'Reilly UK.  Turns out that they have a 'user group
programme' for supporting user groups.  More details in the forwarded
letter below.

Assuming no one has any objections to the occasional e-mail from
O'Reilly to this list (see my next message, which shows an example) I'll
follow this up with Josette.

Hi Nik
Following our conversation in Amsterdam, please find below information on
the O'Reilly UK User Group Programme. Only slightly different from the US


User Group Leaders
O'Reilly has a programme for your members!

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 include:

	Review copies of O'Reilly products
	25% discount on all O'Reilly products
	Donations of books and other promo items
	Speaking engagements with O'Reilly authors when possible
	Electronic Newsletter
	Printed catalogues  twice a year

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
