Bring the brightest minds and newest finds in paleontology to your city and institution – host an SVP annual meeting! SVP is currently accepting proposals for annual meeting sites for 2011 and beyond. To get started, simply form a prospective host committee of no fewer than 2-3 members and submit a brief proposal (details below). The host committee will work closely with the SVP executive committee and business office on various aspects of the planning and execution of the meeting. A brief (one-page) proposal letter, addressed to the SVP Executive Committee, should contain the following: - Year(s) the proposal is good for (flexibility is very helpful) - Venue proposed (city/town, province/state & country) - Initial host committee members (two, at minimum, is enough to start) and their contact information - Institution(s)/organization(s) involved - Any information that might be helpful in the evaluation of the site such as: - New exhibits that might be opening prior to the proposed meeting - Any events that will be happening simultaneous to the proposed meeting date - New local infrastructures on the horizon such as an airport - Local field trip areas of interest (a very general description only) - Do NOT include: specifics about local hotels, facilities and convention center capacities and availabilities. SVP’s convention services team will do all of the specific hotel and site evaluations. DEADLINE: Thursday, March 19, 2009.
