Title: 2nd VP Report

2nd VP Report
Conference planning is progressing and many of the final details are falling into place.  The SUNYLA 2011 Conference Website will have many more details very soon about local arrangements and other relevant information.
One thing that we’ll need to discuss at the Council meeting is conference costs.  Here are my proposed costs:

Registration Costs:
$55 for members
$65 for non-members
$40 for students

Wednesday Night Dinner:
$35 per person for dinner at Valcour Boathouse (menu forthcoming)

On campus Housing in MacDonough Residence Hall:
$40 per person for single occupancy
$30 per person for double occupancy

There will be several low cost pre-conference diversions and activities such as a wine tour for $15.

The Keynote speaker has been chosen and has accepted our invitation.  The program planning committee has chosen Curtis Kendrick.

The deadline for proposals is March 15th.  So far, we’ve received only 11 proposals.  If you know of anyone who is considering submitting a proposal, please encourage them to submit in the next week.

Could the non-member registration rate be set (both student non-member and professional non-member) to at least the price of member dues ($30) plus the registration cost of the conference? The conference is our major draw for dues, and without it there's not much of a hope in getting people to join SUNYLA?
Thanks,
Logan

That's an excellent point, Logan; I'd be in favor of raising the non-member conference registration fee.

That reminds me... do we know where the 2012 Conference will be yet?

I'll note these questions to the Agenda so we can discuss them during the meeting tomorrow.
