I think I heard it was Las Vegas, Columbus OH, Dallas/Houston,Denver but
I forget the precise order.

I can understand the workings of booking rooms, conference rooms, galleries,
location etc... however who scouts out these locations to determine which
locations suits our membership best? Is it possible to send out a tender to
large hotels in major cites describing the size of our membership and the
needs of our conference. You do realize that we who live near the pacific
ocean have more than just a hotel and conference rooms to offer, we have the
scenery. Ask Vince what he thought of Vancouver during his Coloured Clay
Workshop last summer. And your American dollar will go a looooong way here.
Has a Canadian city been considered? Just thought I'd ask again.

Vancouver to the best of my knowlege has not. All I can do is forward your
suggestion to the board. You could contact Minerva, or current members of the
board directly and talk to them about it.

I would vote for a Vancouver conference......YESSS....
the place is lovely in March . There are wonderful educational and ceramic
resources close, and to boot ......there are many excellent ceramic artists
living and working there. I also think it would be an excellent way to
increase the Canadian participation in NCECA.
I know many potters who say they would attend if it were held in Canada.
Winnipeg is kinda cool in March, (much the same as Colombus actually), but
there is a lot happening Art wise and many excellent ceramists working
there. Great fine arts programming at the University of Manitoba,
AND...................its right in the centre of the continent.......
saves the east vs west debate...lots of downtown hotels and a huge
convention centre right close. And NO.. I don't work for the Manitoba
Dept. of Tourism.....haha!
Just some comments from a Canuk who likes to attend NCECA.....
and wants to let people know that ceramics are alive and thriving on this
side of the border.
