It's in the original prospectus that you all worked on before I came on


There was mention of a discount on the *program administration fees* if a
company signed up for all of the events. That's the only discount we can
offer, unless we want to offer a discount on PyCon US.

The comment I got was "why should we sign up with the PSF and pay 15% more
when we can sign up on our own." Apparently, the offer to manage the
initial paperwork isn't enough to motivate a company signing up :-(.

Maybe we need to rethink what the value is of what we have to offer.
