Oooh...Atlanta sounds good too! I'm up for anything! I don't care one way or the other, but I would be glad to look at pricing here if anyone wants me to. Does not matter one bit to me!

Suzanne, If it's something you feel you would like to take on then I say have at it. Jen and I have both been busy and haven't even discussed the emails yet. We all here in SC live a good distance from each other and I almost would think it would be crucial for us to get together to work on some aspects of the planning so I am just not sure. If you can get it worked on then go ahead! I'd almost say that whoever really works on it first should be who gets it anyway. In Eleni's email to me she pointed out that the conferenece would almost need to be centrally located to a big city, or at least where a big airport would be. Well we have a semi big airport in Greenville, but there would be more to do in the cities away from there which would be looking at a 2-3 hour drive to them. So I am thinking that to accomodate everyone that it would need to be in a big city. I was thinking the Atlanta area would be great, but it's close to me.lol..I want to go this year and should be able to swing it granted the dates don't interfere w/anything.

Basically what I am summing up is that we won't have our toes stepped on if you want to try to look at some info regarding hosting it in FL.

One thing we need to figure out is how we are going to decide, say if you did some figuring on FL and we seriously decided that we wanted to do it in SC how one would decide where would be right to have it..maybe majority rules? I don't know...

Ileana? Eleni? Jaime?

I have sooo wanted to go to the last two conferences. I was planning to start saving now so I could afford to go to the one in 2006, so I hope we have one! SC sounds great! If that does not work out, we may be able to try northwest Florida. I have some connections here in the hotel business, and we may be able to book a hotel on the beach at a decent rate (won't be cheap on the beach, though). I could look into Pensacola, Navarre and Destin beaches. Summer will be more expensive, although it seems summer is a good time for a lot of folks. I belong to the Northwest Florida/South Alabmama chapter, so I will bring it up to those ladies if anyone is interested.

I got an email from Carol (She copied you on it as well). I am waiting to hear from Eleni and then we can discuss to see if there is anyway we can take it on. I know our plates are all full so we'll see.

I think we can wait and see how the conference thing pans out..If we don't have it here and no one else does it then I don't see what would be wrong w/just having an informal post regarding a meet and greet. I agree Charleston would be a great place! Although I am sure there are other places in other states that would be good too..I know we are partial to our state though! LOL!!

Lori, that sounds like an awesome idea! You're right, I don't know exactly what would be involved and whether people would come, but even if just a few of us did....

Not like I'm volunteering [;)] but Charleston is a great place with lots to do. Beaches, historic stuff, aquarium, the list goes on and on. Should we try to "float" an idea out there and see how people react to it? Basically just a social weekend, get to know each other in person, sightseeing and "hanging out", right? Let me know what you think we should try next, and if it really gets off the ground I will help, like I said before.

That sounds good Jenn..I have a lot on my plate as well, and I am not sure w/us all living a good distance apart how it would work but I will email the ladies that Ileana suggested and see exactly what we'd have to do. I would love for us to all get together though.

Hey, here's a thought...Say if we don't have a conference per se, could we just pick a place (don't know how we'd go about this) and just all meet and hang out for a long weekend sometime?

Lori, I'm afraid to take on too much, but if the conference seriously comes to SC I will help as much as I can. Of course, I would love to have it near enough that I could attend, and that would be awesome to have it in SC! I agree with you, though, let's find out more about what is involved and see if we think we can handle it. [:)]

Thanks Ileana! I appreciate it. I am not sure if we can do it or not but it would be worth a shot to see what is involved. There are 4 of us very active in our state, and 2 others that do post on occasion. I think in all I have 16 registered members in my state. This might be something that would get them more involved.1

Thanks again!

Lori, you should contact Eleni, Carol and/or Jaime for more details... I'll send you their emails in private.
