Re: [802SEC] Houston, we have a problem
I also may have a conflict for the following week. Not 100%
certain about that

Buzz and all,
The week of March 21-26 is Spring Break for a significant number of
schools in the US.
I strongly object to moving the Plenary to that week. I have already
booked and paid for a vacation with my family. Many other people I know
have also already booked vacations. This is a very busy vacation
time and people booked very early.
In a message dated 9/17/2003 9:49:39 PM Central Daylight Time,
- Colleagues, We had
recently become aware of this impending problem but everyone was amazed
that it seemed to happen almost overnight. We have already begun a
process to identify another property to use for the March 2004
Plenary. We are receiving major assistance from Hyatt National
Sales as well as some other industry resources. The good news is
that due the current economic downturn it appears we have several very
reasonable alternatives, some of which are even located in the Orlando
area, which would of course make for a very easy transition. We are
currently evaluating these alternatives to find our best options and are
hoping to provide a ranked list of the final candidates by the end of
next week. We do at least have enough strong candidates that we
feel very confident that this will be a low impact substitution (and
given the current economic conditions might even qualify as a trade-up to
an even better deal).
- So hang in there, Houston
... help is on the way !!!
- Now for one question to our
SEC: One exceptionally good alternative is only available for the
week following our currently scheduled week of March 14-19, 2004.
Is anyone aware of a serious conflict or dislocation that would occur if
we were to consider a proposal for the week of March 21-26, as an
alternative ??? If there are known significant conflicts we will
not consider the change of dates.
- Thanx, Buzz
