Dear Conference and Retreat Center Hosts,
As the LOM Board prepares to fulfill some exciting new aspects of the Strategic Plan they are seeking a host site for the LOM Interim Director Training. This letter is to invite an open bid process for all LOM sites to host this training event.
The process is a bid format. We invite any LOM site that can meet the attached hosting criteria to make a bid to host. The bid to host process has been adopted in order to be good stewards of LOM funds and provide members with the opportunity to host official LOM sponsored events. It is our expectation that each site put forward it’s best in hosting and caring for LOM groups.
In 2017, the dates will be May 8-12. These dates are non-negotiable.
Please review the criteria sheet to see if your site can fulfill the groups meeting needs. If your site would like to make a proposal (bid) to host please use the attached application page to do so.
Proposals will be reviewed by the Event Coordinator in conjunction with the LOM Executive Director. Proposals will be accepted until December 20, 2016 and sites will be notified by January 6, 2017.
One additional factor will play a role in the final host site choice. The Event Coordinator will average prices from 6-8 destinations to your airport and add that average cost to each proposal. As a result, your site proposal will be added to average airfare price to make up your final proposal (bid) price.
Please direct any questions to:
Executive Director, LOM
