Thanks to everyone who completed the survey. We had a good response, and we will take everyone’s ideas into account when we plan breakout sessions.


Conference hotel grand opening

November 12, 2009

The Macon Marriott City Center held its grand opening last night. Once I recovered from the embarrassment of being unprepared for valet parking (a messy car with short-person settings, no cash for a tip), I set out exploring. The hotel is connected to a renovated conference center (the largest in Georgia outside of Atlanta) by an interior corridor, so everything we need will be in one spot.

I came away reassured — excited, even — that it’s going to be a great place for our conference. There are plenty of ballrooms and meeting rooms in different sizes, and the décor, while on the cheery side, is in good taste. When I ran into the Senior Sales Manager he said that they had paid special attention to providing enough electrical outlets; anywhere they could imagine someone sitting down with a computer, they placed an outlet.

Several of us on the planning committee will do a more thorough tour soon.

It’s located at 240 Coliseum Drive, Macon, Georgia, or approximately N32° 50’ 34” W83° 37’ 06” .
