All of these are the items that we need to discuss in Savannah before we make a
decision. The convention center at Jeykll was working up a new proposal to
send to us.

In reviewing the questions, I have a couple of areas of discussion.
It seems that the change in mileage would "balance" the change in the hotel
room rate...unless the hotel is cheap enough to make it worth it.
Did Jekyll have food and entertainment as readily available as Savannah?
What would the budget look like? (comparing Jekyll to Savannah) And, how would
that impact the conference rate?

We want to give everyone a quick update.
Per our last board meeting when we discussed other venue options, Donna
suggested Jekyll Island. Since these types of decisions have to be made rather
quickly -- as in a week. We had to move fast. As our conference chair
committee person, Priscilla contacted the Conference Center in Jekyll as well
as the Westin.
The conference center recommended a small group on-site visit. Per their
suggestion we visited three different hotels; the Westin, the Hampton Inn, and
The Holiday Inn along with a tour of the conference center.
We have several pros and cons we need to discuss with the board as a whole and
we plan to do this on Tuesday after we unload at the convention center. Please
plan to be available for at least one hour after unloading at 4:00 pm.
In the meantime, we have been brainstorming with what we were presented today.
We believe we need to send a survey out to our current registered attendees.
Attached you will find the survey.
Anna, can you send this in a survey format via reg-online?
Can't wait to see everyone on Tuesday!
