At the 2000 annual meeting there was some discussion that because the AMICO Meeting falls near the end of many Members' fiscal years, that it would be helpful to have a package price for the conference that could be paid in advance. This would help to avoid the end of the fiscal year travel/meeting budget crunch. In that spirit we have put together a bundled price offer for the upcoming Annual AMICO Meeting which will take place at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, Canada June 20-22, 2001.All payments need to be made by check, in U.S. currency, payable to the Art Museum Image Consortium. Forms and checks must be returned to AMICO no later than April 13, 2001.
