Horace Greeley famously said "Go west, young man," then stayed back east and
made a fortune in publishing (which he then lost on a variety of crazy
schemes). EPA also urges you to go west -- to Portland for this year's
annual EPA convention. We can't promise that a fortune in publishing awaits
you at the end of the Oregon trail, but we can promise solid training,
inspiring speakers, and a great time of fellowship with your industry

You might be thinking, "Hey Mr. Director Guy, I'd sure like to go to
Portland, but it's a tiny bit more expensive to fly there than to fly to
Chicago, so I think I'll just stay home and watch TV." Let me respond by
saying that there's no need to call me "Mr. Director Guy" -- just "Director
Guy" will do. But let me also add that there's a free shuttle from the
airport to the hotel. And there's free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. And we've
lined up free downtown transportation for "dinner on your own" Thursday
night. Add it all up and suddenly staying home to watch TV doesn't seem like
a great career move, does it?

Those earlybird registration rates won't be around forever. In fact, they
won't be around next week. Please visit the web site and register now. (If
you have trouble with the web registration, drop me a line and I'll send you
a form you can print and fax.)

The publishing world is changing, and EPA is ready to help you meet the
challenges of the 21st century -- but you'll need to meet us halfway. Or
actually a little more than halfway. You'll need to meet us way out west in
Portland. Sign up today!
