Register at Discount by July 31st for the 2013 Midwest BLGTA College Conference!

From the UC LGBTQ Center:
The MBLGTACC 2013 Planning Coalition would like to remind you about an upcoming deadline to register for the 2013 Midwest Bisexual Lesbian Gay Transgender Ally College Conference. We know that with summer breaks, vacations and traveling (and the wonderful summer sunshine!), people may check their email less frequently — so we wanted to remind you with plenty of time in advance!

Register by July 31st!

Registration, both online and by mail, is currently available at the reduced price of $55. However, registration prices will increase to $65 after July 31st. The registration price will continue to increase according to the following timeline:

– May 1, 2012 – July 31, 2012: $55
– August 1, 2012 – February 1, 2013: $65
– After February 1, 2013: $75

Students and those who work directly with LGBTA students are encouraged to register for the conference.
