Convention earlybird registration deadline fast approaching!

The earlybird registration cutoff date for the Gathering of the Clans convention is almost here.

The cutoff date is June 1, which means that you have just days to register for the joint CCNA/ACNA convention and pay only earlybird rates.

The convention, to be held in Halifax, Canada's ocean playground, runs from July 4-6 at the Westin Nova Scotian Hotel. Register today to save $100 if you're registering as the first delegate, as an additional delegate, alumni or spouse. Register children at the earlybird rate and also save as much as $50.

The Gathering of the Clans will be a gathering of the minds as community newspaper people from across the Canada meet in Halifax, Nova Scotia to exchange ideas in both professional and social settings.

This Convention is guaranteed to offer the best value for your time and money, so act now to qualify for these savings. Register early by fax, mail or online at CCNA's Convention web site at www.communitynews.ca/convention2002 .

And don't forget - to guarantee the special convention rate of $159 at the Nova Scotian Hotel, be sure to make your hotel reservations as soon as possible.
