I think it's the NASSHP's annual conference that we usually try to coordinate with - all the doctors are already in one place! For 2006 though, there won't be a NASSHP conference as they will be having an international gathering. I believe that's why our PF 2006 location is up for grabs.

I believe that anyone who is interested in hosting the conference should send an email to Carol Hamilton, as she is the national GC.

I would consider Phoenix![:D] Although I think that the conference will be planned for the summer (ugh!), because that tends to work for folks.

I really want to go this year. Looking forward to seeing a lot of you no matter where it is!

I emailed Carol with information today about Indianapolis's Convention Center and Catering possibilities as well as I will see about discount tickets to the Children's Museum and Zoo if we can get a group together for DH's and children or even us afer the conference.

Who's next??

Sue if you do it in Inianapolis I would be more than happy to come down early and spend a couple days helping you get everything together. Let me know a little in advance.

I was just going over notes from the last Group Coordinator's conference call and this is what Carol wrote:

Annual Conference possibilities



Because of the difficulties of planning our annual conference from a distant location, the PF decided that to have a 2006 meeting a team of volunteers is needed that can organize and host the meeting in their local area.
In the past 2 years the PF has determined the location of our meeting based on the location of the annual North American Society for the Study of Hypertension in Pregnancy (NASSHP) meeting. This way we were able to secure the participation of doctors who could conveniently speak at our meeting. In 2006, there will not be a NASSHP meeting so we will not be using that strategy to determine our location.
A few locations were discussed on the call (SC, CO) but the KEY factor will be who can step up to organize the event on the local level. Of course, the PF will be giving guidance and support to the planning of the meeting.

Danielle,

That would be fabulous. I have heard from Troutorama that she will be able to help a day or so prior to the conference if held here in Indiana as they will be visiting family in a nearby state. Whosiers said she would be able to help after a project she is currently involved in gets over with in April. So that would be .. hmm .. 4 of us so far. I did send some info to Carol already and I am sure that needs to be discussed with the Admin/Board. Anyone else interested?
