Waze staff has entered into final negotiations, so it appears things are on track for a contract by end of the month.

Expect an announcement with the hotel selection and a link to the meetup registration form in early December!

Staff has completed hotel negotiations and has submitted a finalized contract to the legal team for signature and delivery!

Once we've got confirmation from the hotel that the signed contract has been received and everything is order, we will announce the final details including the hotel's identity, as well as publish the registration form for the meetup.

Be aware that while registration will be open through June 2017, editor headcount has been capped at 38 editors.

As a result, editors are strongly encouraged to register early!

Anyone who registers after our 38 editor slots are filled will be waitlisted. We will draw from the waitlist if any confirmed attendees need to cancel.

The planning committee is very pleased to be able to report we can disclose the venue selected for the 2017 meetup!

The 2017 Great Lakes Region All-Editor Meetup will be hosted at JW Marriott Indianapolis!

The committee is very glad staff was receptive to our encouragement to host the meetup at the group's far-and-away favorite venue of the three that were submitted.

While the JW Marriott was the most expensive of the three options submitted, we were able to convince Waze staff the extra expense was worth the money.

The meetup overview post at the beginning of this thread has been updated accordingly.


HUGE SHOUTOUT:

The Planning Committee's Hotel Coordinator Justin, aka fbisurveillancevan21, was absolutely crucial in helping us pull off this coup. Justin dedicated a truly staggering number of volunteers hours into this venue search. The 2017 meetup will be immensely more impressive as a direct result of his efforts. Please make a point to thank him face-to-face for all his work when you encounter him at the meetup.


The Planning Committee is excited to see as many editors as possible at the JW Marriott Indianapolis in August 2017!

I would suggest consideration be given to presentations on commonly used scripts. It seems like there's always a lot of chat about scripts.
