The planning for General Council 2017 has been under way for some time now. The removal of the GCA at General Council 2016 created many stumbling blocks and has made it difficult to move forward with many of the details of the event.
So far, the office has secured the site and the announcement will be mailed out soon. Please pass along for those of you without access to Facebook, the Alliant Energy Center was selected as this year’s venue. This selection was made primarily due to vacancy of the board and to keep continuity in services for our tribal members.
The announcement postcards will be mailed out by August 3rd.
Showcore, Inc., submitted a proposal for full spectrum event services. This is the company that produced the event in 2016. They are familiar with the services that our event requires. The Office of General Council has worked with Showcore in the past for event production. Prior to 2013, Showcore, formerly known as IML, was the main vendor for these services.
Showcore is uniquely qualified as they facilitated the 2016 event. The services that they provided were exceptional and the cost was more than reasonable. Additionally, due to the lack of time that is needed to prepare for this event, it is felt that Showcore is the only one available to satisfy the requirements for the 2017 General Council Meeting.
