BPL Catering

Steven had a meeting with the events staff at BPL on 5/11/2016.  Since Hydra is not actually a non-profit there is a question as to whether we can get the non-profit discount for the conference.


Until that is resolved we will not have final costs for catering, which is key for establishing registration costs for the conference.  The reception is estimated to cost $25,000.00

Hopefully the issue will be resolved by May 20, 2016 – next meeting with the catering company

What info needs to be in the registration form? We will work with the program committee to iron out those details.
