Conference 2010: Pick a date

We’ll be holding our 2010 LabourStart conference in Canada and have to choose which of two dates works best for most of us.  Please use the comments to reply to this so everyone can see who can attend when and the decision making process will be more transparent.  (In other words, please do not email Eric or Derek about this – let us all know in the comments.)

The two possible dates are:

  • 18 – 20 June
  • 9 – 11 July

  • Can do it in June, but not in July (I teach). — Roy

  • Unfortunately there is little or no chance that I can be there next year because of the lack of vacation time I now have available

    I’m afraid both these dates will be difficult for me. 18th-20th of June may be possible, dependent on the process of finalizing Congress documents which have to be sent out around that date. A week later would have been better.

    July is better for me

  • From this end I don’t know that there is a whole lot of difference, save for there being a conflict with another major conference in June. It’s an academic conference but one that attracts a fair number of trade union researchers.

    So I have a mild preference for the July date.

  • Just off the phone with our ‘sponsors’ at McMaster. They’re far from unpleasant about it, but would clearly be disappointed if the date were in June as many of them won’t be able to come.
