Thank you to everyone who filled out the previous forms, to guide our planning.

We are now moving to phase 3 and selecting a weekend to host the meetup.
ONLY if you plan to possibly attend a regional meetup in the NE² on one of these weekends in Philadelphia, PA, please fill out this form. If you are not planning on attending, please DO NOT fill out this form.

We already had about 30 respondents complete this form, we are hoping the rest will complete it ASAP so we can make a decision.
The ultimate choice for weekend date will be made by staff, but we can provide input.

Click here to fill out the weekend selection form

The main event with the presentations will be on Sunday, Saturday will be more informal, getting settled, mingling etc,.
Please feel free to share this message with any editors of the NE².

Thank you to everyone who filled out the previous forms, to guide our planning.

We are now moving to phase 3(b) and selecting a weekend to host the meetup.
ONLY if you plan to possibly attend a regional meetup in the NE² on one of these weekends in Philadelphia, PA, please fill out this form. If you are not planning on attending, please DO NOT fill out this form.

We previously were selecting a weekend in March or April. However due to an internal conflic which arose, staff will be unable ot attend either of those dates. The ultimate choice for weekend date will be made by staff, but we can provide input. We are attempting to choose a different weekend where staff will be able ot join us and enhance our meetup. We are gathering data for the entire months of June & July, and will use the reslts to help when we narrow down the dates with staff.

Feel free to offer here or directly to me. No good help will be turned down. If you have venues you want to recommend which would be suitable for a conference with right 50 attendees, with A/V presentation, outlets for laptops at each table etc. and some decent lounge amenities please feel free to pass them up.

First let's see what the market rate is, get a few estimates, then drill down. Looking for average not luxury resort, not bed and breakfast.

There will be, but the agenda has yet been posted.

Yes there are details in the form. But in summary you get either a) the flight, or b) gas/tolls reimbursement. If you take the flight, then taxi to/from hotel is not included.
