May 2018 - Membership Input Needed

We have a rare opportunity to potentially hold the 2020 March conference on a riverboat riding the Illinois River!  The boat departs Peoria Thursday morning, March 12, 2020. We'd spend Thursday night at the Starved Rock State Park Inn and travel on Friday, March 13, back to Peoria, Illinois.

The conference sessions will take place during the day on Thursday and Friday as we glide along the river. We’ll have the unique opportunity to learn, network, and explore against the background of a riverboat. Bonus! You can wear your period clothing for the entire tour.

Estimated Costs vary depending on occupancy:
$405/person for single; $355/person for double, $325/person for triple, and $295/person for quad. (By comparison note that the recent Fall 2017 conference at Sauder Village ran about $360.00. 

This cost includes conference registration, paddle wheeler transportation, luggage shuttle service to the Inn, meals on the paddle wheeler (Thurs. breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner and Fri. snack, lunch, and snack; Fri. breakfast at Starved Rock Inn); and lodging at Starved Rock State Park Inn. As with other conferences, additional nights before or after at a local hotel, pre-conference workshops and tours, and travel to and from Peoria are not included.  

This scheduling differs from normal with check-in on Thursday morning, 8:30-9:00 a.m. at the landing in Peoria, Illinois, and immediate departure promptly at 9:00 a.m. The paddleboat returns to Peoria on Friday at approximately 5:15 p.m.

We need your help to determine if there is enough interest to confirm if we should plan this conference in 2020.  We need to have an idea of interest to proceed.

Please take a moment and respond to this very short survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Y6PJNRT by May 20, 2018.

We appreciate your help with this planning!

Sincerely,
Ed Crabb
Conference Registrar
