Toronto 2012 ISO Conference Reminder & Update

| No Comments

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:

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 day.

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 recovery,

Kevin - SCA Toronto

ISO Host Committee
