Subject: Re: SSC 2012 Bid from the University of Guelph

Duncan:

Please find attached the University of Guelph bid for the SSC meeting for 2012. I'll leave you to look over the files attached, but the key items are our four-page proposal, two budgets (one for 450 registrants and one for 600 registrants) and "Statistical Society of Canada Conference Bid Information". Please let us know if you have any questions.

You will note that the projected surpluses are about 25K based on 450 registrants and about 40K based on 600 registrants. Brian and I believe our central location in southern Ontario combined with some other factors will result in a registration closer to 600 than 450. You can be assured that attendees of the meeting will get tremendous value for their registration fee.

I will send a pdf of a Guelph brochure in a separate file due to its size.

Thanks for your assistance in answering our many queries pertaining to our bid.

Sincerely,

Gary
