Is there any chance that a conference might be held outside of North
America in the next ten years?

Conference dates and places are usually established a minimum of 5 years in
advance.  It takes quite a bit of planning to book the huge conference
centers and work with different cities around the USA and Canada to plan
conferences.  So yes, the dates and cities are set for at least the next 5

                Pity about the change in dates for the ARMA Conference in
the past few
                years.... as I remember, it used to be held closer to the
middle of
                September than it is now....

                Many organizations have their fiscal year beginning on
October 1, which
                makes later September- early October dates difficult for
                individuals to get funded and/or approved for travel!

                Also, and I fully appreciate that ARMA *IS* an
                organization, it's not easy for some firms to get approval
for what is
                considered "foreign travel"... while it's not easy for some
of us in the
                US to think of Canada as a foreign country, well..... by
definition, it
                still is.

                I realize that holding Conferences is similar to Real
Estate, the first
                rule is Location, (followed closely by Location and
Location) and likely
                that is why the date comes second in determining to hold
                but it might be "food for thought" for future conferences,
say starting
                with 2002, which likely hasn't had it's date set yet....
I'm sure
                locations are being scouted out!

                Just out of curiosity.... HOW MANY of you are affected by


                ....oh, and if you don't want to clog up the List with
responses, you
                can send them to me and I'll collect a list of names OR you
can post
                them to the USENET Newsgroup
                unfortunately is a HIGHLY under used venue!!
