…and start your engines.  Early bird registration for LIANZA Conference 2009 opens today!  As we all know, the early bird gets the worm, or in this case a cheaper price and nobody’s got tons of extra money these days do they?  So it’s worth getting in early.  Well unless, that is, you’re thinking of becoming a fresh, shiny, new LIANZA member in which case you should hold off in case you’re the lucky winner of a free conference registration.

The winner will be contacted in the first week of August and earlybird registration will remain open until later that month so if you’ve just joined LIANZA for the first time a “wait and see” approach is probably the smart one.  The rest of you hardened conference campaigners should think about getting yourselves over to the Conference website and filling in the registration form.

In other news your organising committee has been hard at work putting the finishing touches on this year’s programme and all the information on sessions, speakers and social events are now available in the registration brochure so feel free to peruse this at your leisure.  We’ll be blogging about some of the content starting from next week so check back here for the skinny on what this year’s conference has in store.
