On behalf of the Site Selection Committee (Anna Creech, Anne McKee, and myself) and the Executive Board, I am really pleased to let you know that sites for the 2018 and 2019 conferences have been chosen.
- For 2018, we will visit Atlanta, GA. The conference hotel will be the Grand Hyatt Atlanta – Buckhead, and the dates will be June 7-10.
- The 2019 conference location will mark a return to Pittsburgh, PA (where the 1999 conference was held), and the conference site will be the Omni William Penn Hotel. Dates will be June 5-8.We were really impressed, not only by hotel amenities, but the wealth of interesting cultural, dining, and travel opportunities offered by both cities for NASIG attendees. Both locations were very eager to host our event. And as Anna noted in a recent email to you all, our hope is to be able to return to them on a site rotation schedule in future.At the moment, I am working on committee appointments for 2017/18 so if anyone is particularly interested in working on the Conference Planning Committee (CPC) for 2018 and hasn’t yet volunteered, please contact me directly. In addition, we are hoping to get an early start on CPC for the 2019 conference, so if anyone is interested in that opportunity, please also let me know. Angela Dresselhaus (incoming Vice-President/President-Elect) and I will work together to appoint that group.Mark your calendars and plan to attend at these two very special locations!Steve
