We also have 100 beds reserved in the dorm, some are single occupancy rooms
and some double. Costs of rooms will range from $20.00 to $35.00 per night.
The range of costs will include either one, two or three meals in the
student cafeteria. There are some new apartments being built on campus and
a limited number of those may be available.
The campus is about 2 miles from the Santa Fe Plaza and about 2.5 miles
from the museums. Getting the rooms at this cost is a big big plus!
Latecomers and those who wish more luxurious accomodations can of course
obtain rooms in any of the many hotels and motels. Prices there range from
$250.00 per night in the fancy jobs to 39.95 at Motel 6.
The dates for APIS '99 are July 7,8,9,10.
I am assessing costs. The auditorim is costing us but it is reasonable and
we will need audio visual, web-site, and a part-time staff person near the
time of the event. I am thinking that 100-125 will be the registration fee
and we will start signing up people in the Fall. This should give 9 months
lead time which I think is plenty. The dates are hard now, so you can mark
them out on your calendar.
Plans are for registration and then a get together in the auditorium on the
night of July 7 th. I'd like to have a "fun" speaker, someone in the
alt-photo field who is amusing and inspiring???? Any ideas.
I've added the extra day. I've taken a hint from Esther Dyson who puts on
those expensive exclusive computer conferences. She says leave lots of time
for networking. I also need to let people have enough time to shop at the
plaza, it helps to keep our taxes down. (Think I can get Bill gates as a
keynote speaker?.... naw, he couldn't afford the airfare!)
I have some ideas on a keynote speaker that I am working on.
I also plan not just a presentation of work but some folks from allied
fields to talk, such as gallery owners for one, critics for another,
educators on teaching alt-photo. Any ideas along this line are welcome.
