Toronto 2012 ISO Conference Reminder & Update

The following
was posted to the ISO List today:

We are now
in the final few months before the ISO Annual Conference on April 20 – 22,
2012. If you are attending, please remember that to qualify for the discounted
rate, hotel bookings need to be made by
the deadline of March 21, 2012 at the latest.

For details
about the conference, please see previous email announcements and SCAnner
postings on July 24, 2011 and September 5, 2011:—toronto-april-20—22-2012.html

Please let
us know by email at when you have made your reservations.
Please also let us know if you plan to attend either or both of the optional
self-pay meals on Friday evening, April 20, 2012 immediately before the
conference, or Sunday lunchtime, April 22, 2012 immediately after the
conference so we have an idea of the numbers. We anticipate that a self-pay
meal will cost somewhere in the region of $20 to $25 per head.

We have
booked a room at a local community centre within walking distance of the Delta
Chelsea Hotel which will be available for Literature Development Committee
purposes from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Friday April 20, 2012 if needed. The
room seats 8 people around a table comfortably, and has a capacity of up to 12
people in total. This can be used for working on any new literature that is in
the pipeline, or translations, or indeed the redesign of existing literature
that has been raised as a possibility in the past. If not needed for
literature, the room can be used for general purposes, such as perhaps work on
the planned remodeling of the ISO website, or similar projects. If you are
interested in using the room, please coordinate with us by email before the

The Delta
Chelsea hotel has also confirmed that we have the use of the meeting room we
have hired at the hotel on Sunday April 22, 2012 until 5:00 p.m. if needed.
This means we can use the same room for a meeting after the official ending of
the conference at no extra charge if we wish.

For those
travelling to Toronto from New York or Chicago who may be interested, we have
been advised by a member that Porter Airlines currently has a 50% sale on base
fares for tickets for travel before April 30, 2012. Bookings must be made by
midnight on January 6, 2012.
Travel by April 30, 2012. Use Promo Code BOX50.
For details, please see Porter Airlines’ website:

We are
providing this information as a courtesy only, not as a recommendation or
endorsement. Travel arrangements are entirely up to individuals to decide on.

We have been
having an exceptionally mild winter so far, so if this continues we may have
some unexpectedly good weather at conference time in the spring. A bulletin on the
actual weather conditions will follow towards the date.

Happy New
Year to all!

Yours in
