Site Selection
Rick Anderson, Katy Ginanni, Joyce Tenney

The committee presented the slate of options to the Executive Board for the 2011 conference at the June 2009 NASIG Board meeting.  Over the summer the Site Selection Committee refined the bids from three cities and conducted site visits.  All three cities were viable and offered good bids.  After Executive Board discussion, bids were pursued for sites for both the 2011 conference and 2012 conference.  A favorable contract was negotiated with the 2011 city, which will be announced at our conference in Palm Springs.

Upon completion of that contract, the committee began negotiations for 2012.  It was determined that the needed dates for the conference were not available in that city due to a city-wide conference already booked there.  After consultation with the Executive Board, it was agreed that another city would be slotted for 2012, and we might look again at the second city for the 2013 conference, if favorable dates and rates could be obtained.

Currently, bids are being reviewed to determine good choices for the 2012 conference location.
