    How We Choose Our Large Meeting Locations

    Thank you so much to all our members who attended the 2017 Annual Meeting and a special thank you to those attendees who completed the post-meeting survey.  Member feedback is vital to our ability to serve the membership, so we appreciate any opportunity to find out just how we are doing.  Inevitably, after every meeting, we receive responses regarding the distance of the meeting location to the survey respondent, no matter the meeting location.  We thought this would be a helpful time to explain in more detail the methodology of choosing our meeting venues.
