Oh boy, there's a lot of planning going on. We're trying to keep ahead of the game because it's been demonstrated that when we have a lot of time and a team that's on the stick, the conference is a madhouse, a very smoothly running madhouse.
And there's the rub, the AHA depends upon us to be that team that provides the backbone of the conference. All of those events? Planned by someone local.
For the conference to come to your area, what the organization needs is at least one crazy person to raise their hand, start exploring possibilities, demonstrate local availability of volunteers and work with Gary to find appropriate hotels that won't kill us on cost, are right sized for the attendance and have intriguing possibilities nearby. (By the way, your local tourist board or city convention committee can give you a leg up on this.)
So, if you're wanting to see the conference swing to your area, contact the G-man (firstname.lastname@example.org
) for the planning document and go to it. In other words, yup, the conference will appear where we have teams that can put together the right package.
