Amway Grand Plaza, Grand Rapids

The Evergreen 2010 Site Nomination Committee is pleased to announce that we have made TWO selections.

Grand Rapids, Michigan, in the heart of an Evergreen state, will be the site for the Evergreen 2010 conference, to be held April 21-23, 2010 at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, a lovely four-star hotel with exceptionally good room rates in a great downtown district with piano bars, fine dining, and interesting things to see and do.

Austin, Texas has been tapped as the potential site for Evergreen 2011 (and Texas will soon be an Evergreen state, too!).

Please welcome your Evergreen 2010 International Conference committee:

Bill Ott, Information Systems Manager
Michele Montague, Technical Services Supervisor
Elaine Bosch, Circulation Manager
Marla Ehlers, Assistant Library Director
Kristen Krueger-Corrado, Marketing and Communications Manager
Dawn Roberts, Equinox Software
Karen G. Schneider, Equinox Software

A heartfelt thanks to the Evergreen 2010 Site Nomination Committee (which is staying in place through early fall to see us through the 2011 selection and contract process):

Andrea Buntz-Neiman, Kent County Library
Deanna Frazee, Killeen City Library System, Texas
Ben Hyman, SITKA

Note that it is not too early to be thinking about volunteering for the 2012/2013 site selection process — 18 – 24 months out is an excellent timeframe for considering conference sites.
