Yearbooking alone should be an oxymoron. That’s why we created Yearbook Club, a regular gathering (that sounds more fun than online training, right?) for parents, teachers, editors, and yearbook aficionados: from cohorts for new advisers to topical sessions, we have every topic you need to make a yearbook. And it’s free. Consider this our way of making you Most Likely to Succeed. (And if you need a PD cert for your administrator, we have you covered there as well.)

So you’ve finished your book (or not)—now what? If your Print Ready date is early May, you have some time to fill at the end of the year and time to plan for distribution.
We’ll talk about how to spend that month with your staff in a way that is celebratory as well as reflective and productive.
For those who are still racing to get books finished, we’ll talk about how to streamline and edit those last few pages to get your book out the door without it looking like a mess. We’ll also talk about how to recruit next year’s staff to create a staff that is diverse in terms of demographics as well as skill set.
