This morning a mighty group of nursing journal editors “met” using a zoom.us video/audio connection to begin the process of planning for our 2018 conference in Boston! Our first order of business – to affirm this location, and proceed with identifying a suitable venue. Of course the Boston area is a high-rent district, so be prepared for prices that are a bit above what we have paid in the past, but the group is already hard at work gathering information about several different locations, and will find the best possible site on the basis of cost in a location that provides the kinds of access that we all have come to know and love (shopping, great food, local entertainment!!).
The Denver planning group is also getting close to signing a contract on a hotel site for 2017. The details are not settled yet, but be prepared for a wonderful location with the best that Denver has to offer!
And of course London – coming up next for 2016! The London planning group meets monthly on zoom.us – our group is stretched all the way from London to California and Gary is leading the way with fabulous plans for one of our best conferences ever (can they get any better, really??)! The web site for 2016 will be ready to unveil in about 2-3 weeks, with details that will inspire you to start making reservations immediately!
We also have a group starting to form to explore the possibility of Cuba as the site for our 2019 conference. Leslie and I are going to Cuba in December with a MEDICC group; we will meet with publishers, journal editors, and nursing faculty and librarians while we are there, and have opened discussion with the MEDICC staff about the possibility of working with them to make local arrangements. Watch this blog for more information!
If you want to join any of these planning groups, please use our contact form to let us know, and we will connect you with the group!
