Here's a quick update on what's happening with IC2015:
- The hotel and conference center contracts have been received, reviewed
and signed by STARFLEET at the end of October. As has previously been
noted, IC2015 will be taking place at the Conference & Event Center Niagara
Falls, and our guest rooms will be across the street at the Sheraton at the
Falls, both in Niagara Falls, New York.

pictures, and videos from around Niagara Falls to give you a preview of
some of the things you'll be able to see and do at IC2015. Our Facebook
page is located at:

be hosting a Hospitality Suite at IC2014 in Rockford, Illinois. Come on
out to IC2014, stop by the hospitality suite and talk with us, and find out
more about IC2015. We're going to try and have a few tastes of the Niagara
region there, along with some pictures and videos of the area.

Thanks, and we'll see you at IC2014 and IC2015!
