Updates and Reminders

The China trip is lining up very nicely and there is a lot of excitement building. As we prepare to go, here are a few reminders and updates:

Please make sure that your visa and passport are in order now. Your passport must be valid for 6 months beyond the last day of the trip. For some reason, the customs agents seem to think that people with passports that are about to expire are a bigger risk and they may reject you. Please check the date on your passport now to make sure you're okay.

Visas don't take a lot of time to complete, but waiting until the last minute can put you at risk of not having it in time. Please contact your local visa service office or contact our visa rep in San Francisco as follows. You must have a visa when you land in Beijing or the Chinese government will deport you.

Profiles in Package and Design Magazine
Package and Design Magazine moved their offices in January and the schedule for our profiles has been delayed slightly. They are now planning to have our profiles published in the May issue which will be coming out when we are there. This means you still have a few more days to upload your bio and portfolio for publication.

Final deadline: 9 March 2008
Please include the following items:
- Your Bio
- A portrait of you (high res)
- Up to 20 portfolio images (high res)

Change in Cancellation Policy
I have been checking with the China Travel Service to clarify the cancellation policy and we have pushed back the final cancellation date as much as possible. We have determined that FOR THE $1368 TRAVEL FEE THE LAST DAY FOR CANCELLATIONS WITHOUT A PENALTY WILL BE APRIL 24, 2008. The travel fees cannot be refunded after April 25, 2008. ALSO, THE AIGA MANAGEMENT FEE OF $200 CANNOT BE REFUNDED AFTER MARCH 31, 2008.
