Missouri GIS ConferenceTony Spicci
Tony: we had a very successful conference in spite of the economy. Jamie: 175 full conference registrations, 11 student registrations, 17 complimentary registrations, 30 workshop-only registrations. About 50 people were presenters. 233 people overall. Estimates: $52,475 registration income, $15,150 in exhibit income. $195 outstanding. Estimating just over $12,000 net proceeds from conference. Originally thought conference numbers were going to be lower, kept expenses to a minimum. Had feedback that breaks need to be restored and food needs to be increased/improved. Tony: conference evaluation: good+excellent responses were high. People liked the format and content. 95% said they would attend again in 2011. 55% February, less in March, less again in April. People like the concept of a central conference, but not overwhelming. About half of attendees responded to the survey. Discussion. Tony: we should strongly consider holding the conference again and making improvements where possible. Committee should be in a position to commit to the 2011 conference by May or June at the latest.
