*In the June 21 Newsflash, the story on the Casino Royale Party incorrectly stated that all Saturday registrations would receive a ticket. The phrase should have read, “Convention attendees who register for the All Inclusive or Networking Packages will automatically receive a ticket.”  Members who do not purchase the All Inclusive or Networking Packages may purchase a general admission party ticket ala cart for $100. We sincerely apologize any confusion the story may have caused.”
