Re: [802SEC] It doesn't have to be either or



Bob,  You are conveniently ignoring the responses to Question #5 which asked about hard price ceilings for nNA venues.  May I point out that:  
  - 40% of all respondents said that Room Rates must be $250US/night & Registration Fee $600US, and 
  - 22% of respondents said that Room Rates must be  $350 US/night & Registration Fee  $800US.  

That would seem to indicate that 62% of all respondents would not approve of the Rome venue.  

That's pretty conclusive in my book.  Our members have spoken ... we just need to listen !!!    :-)  

Thanx,  Buzz

I have a point to make with regard to the survey.  Several times it has
been said that the survey shows that our members have told us they won't
go to Rome.  A variety of reasons have been asserted for this
conclusion, the most frequent being the higher cost of that venue.  

My problem with this "conclusion" is that the survey data do not support
it, in any way that you might interpret that data.  The survey asked the
members to choose between Vancouver and Rome.  The members did.  The
survey did not ask the follow-up question of "with these prices, would
you go to Rome, anyway?" or even "Would you go to Rome at these prices?".

Absent an answer to that question, any conclusion that our members have
rejected going to Rome is only an assertion by the speaker and not
supported by any data that we have gathered.
