The Industrial Minerals Association – North America is excited to announce that registration is now open for the 2013 IMA-NA Annual Meeting. This year’s meeting will take place just outside of Portland, Oregon, within the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, at the Skamania Lodge
The meeting will begin with a day of community service on Monday, September 9th and conclude with the Board of Directors meeting at noon on Thursday, September 12th. In between, we will have a mixture of fun activities and substantive business meetings.
On Monday, September 9th, the Sustainable Development Task Force will be sponsoring a volunteer trail maintenance project on the Cape Horn Trail, a short distance from the Lodge.
On Tuesday, September 10, we have arranged for two recreational events. First, this time of the year is prime time for salmon fishing. We have arranged for either full-day (7 AM to 4 PM) or half-day (3 PM to 7 PM) fishing trips on the Columbia River. Because of the popularity of this time of year, we were limited to 12 full-day slots (first-come, first-serve).
The other option is a golf tournament on the Lodge's great course. We will have tee times beginning at Noon on Tuesday, September 10th.
On the evening of Tuesday, September 10th, we will formally kick off the meeting with our opening reception. We will then have a full day of meetings on Wednesday, September 11th, with a reception and dinner at the hotel. On Thursday, September 12th, we will have a speaker at the breakfast in the morning, and then conclude our meeting with the Board of Directors meeting which will end by Noon.
There are a ton of other great activities at the hotel with access to trails, bike rentals, tennis and basketball courts among other activities, including 10% off at the spa. The hotel room rates are good for 3 days before and after the meeting, so take advantage of the good rates and scenery.
