The next conference isn't that far off: Sept.-Oct. only 6 mos.away. I'd like to respectfully suggest that we put the location up for a vote ASAP and get it locked down so we can start advertising, recruiting and soliciting prospective new members as well as vendors. There isn't any need in even attempting to market the next event until the location is chosen simply because the location is one of the deciding factors on who may or may not attend.

I have the search lady already sending out RFPs for the 2 locations discussed in St Louis. It ususally take about 2 weeks to get responses back.

Once we have them we can decide on which property to hold the fall meeting based on costs, ease to get to, etc.

Currently, we need to focus on attracting more members to the association. Growing the membership is much more important than an actual event.

Once the committees have determined cost factors, as well as, locations then the Board will have to vote on where the next event will be. Additionally, the Board will determine whether the event is open to the public or NABBI members only.

Yup. This is covered ground. The two locales brought up in St. Louis are currently being put thru the wash and I believe it is imperative that we focus on membership to the organization before attendance of events. One promotes the other.

Thank you Tony.

Phil and Tom, both valid points, and I do agree they overlap each other to an extent, but obviously my point was completely missed. The marketing committee cannot begin to "market" the event until the location is decided upon.

For example, the mktng cmte cannot contact vendors and sell the event to them until the majority of the logistics have been worked out. Furthermore, by being able to advertise vendor participation, that in itself may be a means of attracting new members.

We also have to be cognizant of vendor's schedules. So I reiterate my original suggestion of voting on a location 1st, then work out the rest of the details. In the world of "event planning" 6 mos is hardly doable. That's just my opinion...:)

I understand your point. However, as the cliche goes - "you're putting the cart before the horse"

As Mr Suggs stated above, until we know the prices of the venues and the available dates, the Special Events Committee will be unable to submit anything to the Board for approval. This will take 2-3 weeks.

Once the Board of Directors has decided on the location they will submit that information back to the Public Relations/Marketing Committee so that they can start making arrangements.

Additionally, the Board will determine whether the event is to be open to the public or NABBI Member only.

This was probably already discussed, but just in case it wasn't, I have a suggestion.

If there will be a meeting every six months, how about alternating between the coasts in order to allow more people the option of attending that might not be able to do to distance.

Yes, that suggestion was discussed and agreed upon. Right now, as things stand (subject to change), the conferences are supposed to be held in different locations throughout the country. Naturally, as has previously been stated above, the selection of locations are dependent on a number of variables. Some of which are:

*Cost- hotels, meeting room rentals, food n beverage, etc.

*Airports- proximity, major hubs, etc.

*Attractions- casinos, night clubs, golf courses, fishing, etc.

*Training Facilities- Firearms, self-defense, handcuffing, take downs, etc.

There are procedures in place now for everything related to any action that affects NABBI. As I understand it (subject to correction) it works something like this: Suggestions made are directed to the appropriate committees, from there they are passed up the chain to the Board of Directors, then on to either the Vice President or President or both and somewhere in there a vote is held.

I Imagine that someone, either the President or Vice President, in the near future, will lay out the organizational flow chart denoting the various committees and their respective chairpersons, Area Representatives, Association Officers, Members of the Board of Directors, etc. It is also most likely that eventually most information regarding NABBI will move from FRN to NABBI's own website.

In the meantime, all of us need to be actively advertising NABBI to friends, relatives, clients, industry related associations, etc. NABBI's survival, like any other organization, is solely dependent upon membership.

Again, these are my own opinions on these issues. As such, they are always subject to correction and/or changes at later dates.
