To the extent that the Conference Committee makes formal motions and
decisions, Peter made a motion; Peter, Mark, Eli, and Steven voted for
the motion; Till voted against the motion; and having two days elapse,
I'm declaring the motion passed. 2022 LoIs will be open to Europe and
As a side note, we could be slightly more formal in our processes and
decision making which would make things more clear.
Best regards, Eli

Again, I don't have overly strong views either way, but I think it just gives us more options if we leave it open to both.
> I don't think at this point anyone is actively proposing making it only NA for 2022, should we just have a committee vote between the two options of accepting bids for 2022 from Europe only, or from Europe and North America? Do we need any further discussion before we do that?

I think there is a possibility we may get fewer proposals than usual as potential organizers may see more risks than there were in pre-Covid days, and opening it to both would mitigate this to some degree. I don't see much downside to doing this.
