As I get older, I am all about saving money, which means using coupons! Now, I am not one of those extreme coupon shoppers that you watch on TV or dread being behind in the grocery store check-out line. It’s just the philosophy of getting more for less in this ever changing economy. Using a coupon to save 25% on my purchase is thrilling!

INCPAS offers its own coupon for CPE called Value Plus. This discount program can save 25% off registration fees. All you have to do is be a member and register for a minimum of 40 hours of seminars or conferences, all before August 31, 2013. We offer a wide range of seminars in different locations around the state to provide you with the knowledge you need to succeed. Registering for Value Plus is easy. Just contact member services at (317) 726-5000, fill out the registration form, and send it back via email or fax.

Even though last year we had over 450 members that took advantage of this discount, we still have some members call us who are not aware of how Value Plus can save them on their CPE registrations. One of those members called last year and registered for five different seminars. After we automatically applied the discount and provided his new total, he questioned our math skills. When we told him about Value Plus, he thought this program was great and made the whole cost of his membership worth it. Guess who already registered for Value Plus this year? You got it!

You have to get your hours somewhere, so why not take your CPE through your professional home and save some money at the same time? There are a lot of great benefits and values that come with your Society membership, but we hear daily that Value Plus is one of the benefits some of our members like the best.

Now, just like store coupons, there are some fine print disclaimers. You cannot use this for Professional Issues Updates, knowledge management seminars or webinars, and all seminars and conferences must be purchased at the same time to use this discount.

So what are you waiting for? Go shopping now and use your INCPAS coupon now!
