Conventions & Gatherings

"It was an amazing time for me. My biggest regret was not getting there Thursday and staying until Monday." - Jim Hendrix

"I am finally home safely. It took me 22 hours this time, as I had to drive alone, but I would do it again in a heartbeat to be with the beautiful, sweet, kind, compassionate people that I met at the convention. ... and tonight as I sit here and write this, I feel like the world has been lifted from my shoulders." - Georgia

Do you have a host hotel in mind?  Does it have a web site we can look at?  List any web sites for the area (Chamber of Commerce, Visitor sites, etc.)  Also, list any special attractions the area has to offer.

The O.U.C.H. Convention Committee and Board of Directors will review all submissions and decide which proposal will be granted the next convention. 

The decision will be based on the following:

  • Accommodations available - Hotels, Meeting Facilities, Restaurants, Attractions, Things to do and see, etc.

  • Travel Facilities - Proximity to an International Hub Airport.

  • Shuttle service to and from the hotel.

  • Vacation Opportunities - What possibilities does the area afford for attendees who would like to make an extended vacation of the trip?

  • Previous Convention Locations - We would like give each area of the country the opportunity to host a convention. For that reason we will give top consideration to those locations that have not recently hosted a convention.
