The process starts a couple years in advance of a conference when a local club puts together a "bid" (non financial) to have the conference at their location. They submit info on their ability to pull off final round judging, suitable locations, and volunteer resources available other things. There's an online Google doc describing the process, but I don't have the link available on my iPad. If someone doesn't post it, I will later.
