ACUMS is excited to announce the 40th Anniversary conference - the upcoming Fall 2018 conference - hosted by the University of New Hampshire, in Durham, New Hampshire. Our host this Fall will be our members from UNH - Theresa Faist, Ken Barrows and Paul Roberts. The conference programming and final agenda has been set and can be accessed by clicking on the appropriate link on the EVENTS menu at left.

We are planning some special events for the Thursday evening Banquet but no hints other than you have to attend to learn more.

The hotel for this conference is the Holiday Inn Express located in Durham, NH, only a short distance from our conference facility. To make a reservation, you would call the Holiday Inn Express directly at 603-868-1234 and indicate you are attending the ACUMS conference.

Earn your Mailpiece Design Consultant Certification! ACUMS invites you to participate in this opportunity to earn your Mailpiece Design Consultant Certification at the UNH confernce. MDC Certification focuses on classes of mail, mailpiece design, commercial mail preparation/requirements and extra services. This is a great opportunity for you to add more value to your organization along with a new certification to your resume. The normal cost for this is $85 but at this conference ACUMS will underwrite $60 of the cost. This means the certification only will cost $25. If interested, pick the MDC Certification ticket from the choices when you register and it will automatically be added to your registration. You will also have to plan on getting to the conference by about 12:30 on Wednesday, October 17, 2018.

  Registration information

EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT: We are trying something new for this conference: offering an Early Bird Discount. If you register for the full member rate (including the Guest banquet option) PRIOR to 5 pm on October 1, 2018, you will receive an automatic $50 discount off the normal registration price. See pricing information below.

BRYNKA Scholarship : BRYNKA, a long-time supporter of ACUMS and the higher ed mailing industry, has generously offered to underwrite a portion of the registration costs for up to ten (10) first-time attendees (or for someone who has not attended in at least five years). This is on a first come, first served basis and can be combined with the Early Bird Discount shown above if you qualify as a first-time attendee. If you are a new member or a member who has not attended a conference in at least five (5) years, please click this DISCOUNT FORM link PRIOR to completing your registration. In the new window that opens, you will be asked to enter some additional information. When done, the Thank You screen will contain a coupon code to enter in the COUPON CODE field on the Ticket & Product screen. Please note, when the ten Brynka Scholarships have been used, the coupon code will no  longer work in the registration process.

NEW MEMBER PRICING: ACUMS, in a continuing effort to foster membership and attendance at conferences, will once again offer a discounted price for new members who are joining as part of this conference registration process. This discounted price is $75 plus the annual dues ($35) for a total registration rate of $110. You can also bring a guest to the banquet for an additonal $50 (see ticket pricing below)
