Dear friends and colleagues (apologies for cross posting)

This is a reminder that there are just a few days left to register for
the Annual Workshop of the Map Curators’ Group (MCG) of the British
Cartographic Society : *“The customer and the map curator, or, the
importance of being relevant”*

A late booking fee of £50 applies for bookings made after 10 August
(delegates needing an invoice just need to submit their booking form by
Friday 10th August to be considered "early", we don't need the payment
by then). We are sorry that no bookings can be accepted after 17 August.

The speakers are working hard on their presentations for the
Workshopwhich will be held at the University of Leeds, England, on
Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th August 2012.

Thetheme is *“The customer and the map curator, or, the importance of
being relevant”*.

The programme and booking form can be found at
http://www.cartography.org.uk/default.asp?contentID=1035 . The programme
is also reproduced below.

B&B arrangements in the University’s newly refurbished Storm Jameson
Court http://www.meetinleeds.co.uk/stormjamesoncourt.php are available
at special rates for the Workshop. Delegates should book and pay for B&B
via this link:

the Map Curators’ Group (MCG) or the British Cartographic Society - to
meet with colleagues, hear some fascinating talks and go on some
intriguing visits.
