Long-Term Conference Planning Committee
Mission & Goals
The objective of the Long-Term Conference Planning Committee (LTCP) is to identify a location for the annual conference on a three-year horizon to ensure the availability of desired conference facilities and dates.  To accomplish this objective, LTCP:

    ·       Coordinates with Member Services to define meeting space specifications that    meet ALGA’s anticipated conference needs;

    ·       Reviews and updates desirable conference location selection criteria;

    ·       Develops a conference solicitation package that includes an on-line application, and timelines for submission and evaluation;

    ·       Solicits bids from member shops located in the target region;

    ·       Evaluates bids against minimum space requirements, per diem guarantees, and evaluation criteria to identify most desirable location;

    ·       Presents three-year horizon conference location recommendation to the board for approval;

    ·       Notifies bidding audit organizations of bid results; and

    ·       Communicates conference locations to ALGA membership.

Committee Members
The Long-Term Conference Planning Committee consists of seven voting members, including the board secretary, who serves as chair. When available, a past president also serves as one of the seven members. Each of the three ALGA regions - Western, Central, and Eastern - must be represented by at least one committee member. In addition, professional conference planning staff from ALGA Member Services assist the committee in an advisory role.
