Conferences are our primary means of growing revenue for the organization.  The previous OSGeo NA conference was run effectively and at a profit in Washington DC.  The desire is to sustain an annual NA conference and return proceeds back to the organization (with the understanding that we will earmark funds for future NA conferences).  Risk is low, proven organizers, detailed plan and with this approach we can continue to turn the corner and build up financial resources to expand our activities.  Additionally, we have made decisions and assigned board members to review the proposal in detail - this was accomplished.
