Missouri GIS ConferenceTony Spicci

We have not signed a contract with Custom Meeting Planners. Jamie presented one to MGISAC in July. That needs to be signed before we ask her to renegotiate our contract with Tan-Tar-A.

Tony S: any time you renegotiate, they want to preserve revenue and want something in return. David D: there was no motion from July, when Jamie provided a proposal for conference services, to December of 2009. Tony gave an update on MAGIC Symposium registrations; it will be neither a boom nor a bust. Steve read the financial terms of the contract with CMP.
