New call for NPDA 2020 hosts

Dear Colleagues,

Our bids did not work out. Potential hosts tried to make it work, but could not for various reasons. We thank them for trying.

Therefore, the NPDA site selection committee is soliciting bids for the host of the 2020 NPDA National Championships. We are looking for proposals that indicate a strong ability to host and that help create
geographical diversity in the location of the national tournament.
Bids should demonstrate a clear ability to fulfill the
duties/responsibilities of the tournament host.

Those requirements are described here:

Please note that the room requirement is likely less than listed on the above document.

Schools should feel free to inquire about specific elements of the
hosting responsibilities as some dimensions can be altered/negotiated depending on the nature of the request. Of critical importance is a clear indication of support from relevant campus administrators at the
department, college, and/or university level at the host institution.

Potential host schools should also feel free to contact members of the
site selection committee for informal input on hosting logistics, etc.

Bids should be submitted to David Worth at
dworth@rice.edu.

DEADLINE FOR FINAL PROPOSALS: ASAP
