Default NALM 2014 Bidding Officially Open!!!



With great anticipation, we're happy to open the bidding for NALM 2014! Starting 12/1/2013, the NALM Committee will begin accepting Nationwide bids for host cities. Bid guidelines will remain unchanged from last years and are detailed below. The deadline for bid submission will be 3/1/2014 which should leave at least 3 months of planning time with the ground team of the winning bid to finalize the event. The winning bid will be announced on 3/7/2014.

What will you be looking for in my bid?
1. An overview of the event, the big picture, what is your vision for the event?
2. Suggested date. (3 day weekends are preferred but not mandatory)
3. What does your area have to offer other than NALM events? Think outside of the NALM box. What other attractions are there for families and those who want to get out and see the area in their free time. It is these kinds of attractions that will make or break the attendance of those traveling great distances or who will be bringing significant others or families along.
4. A collection of data that says your locale can support what you say it can.
Such as:
*What track(s) are you renting? Are they available on your date? What are the chances you will actually GET those dates?
*What hotels are available and convenient to surrounding events? What are their rates?
*A description of the area. Include details on the area itself, its accessibility, cruising opportunities (ie. driving roads), etc.
*What kind of photo opportunities are available?


How should I submit my bid?
You can submit your proposal however you want, as long as it isn't a post on the forums (feel free to ask questions or discuss ideas). We are looking for proposals to come in the form of email ( nationalacuralegendmeet@gmail.com ), word documents, PDFs, skywriting, whatever. If you prefer delivery by mail, email to the above address to get mailing addresses - You will be asked to send five sets of your mailed proposal to five different addresses (one to each of the board members).


When are bids due?
All bids are due by 11:59 p.m. EST on Saturday, March 1, 2014. Bids will be reviewed by the NALM Committee and the final selection will be announced on Friday, March, 7th 2014.


Please keep in mind that a lot of planning and legwork go into pulling off these meets, so those of you who are already working on a bid need to select your ground team thoughtfully. A Ground Team Owner and a couple of Scouts seems to work best from what we can tell, but it's entirely up to you how you want to operate your bid. Once the winning bid is selected, and announcement will be made with the location and tentative dates - and then the ground team and committee will go to work finalizing the details and filtering that information out to the forum.

Now go get those bids done!!!

This isnt a thread to talk about where youd like NALM to be, this is a thread to put forth a bid and brainstorm about MAKING a bid. Every year we see this! "Oh it would be cool if it was in X place" but then no one but maybe 2-3 teams actually put forth a bid and we here bitching about "oh it was on the east coast last year". Lets see less chit chat this year and more people actually putting forth effort to organize and make a quality bid....

Anyone that is SERIOUSLY INTERESTED in helping with a NW NALM bid message me.
I'm looking at bi-monthly meetings starting after the first of the year.

Please only message me if you can commit the time, effort, and energy needed to attend meetings, put time into face to face contact with possible sponsors and event hosts. This *will* take some time and effort on our parts. I simply can not do it all myself.

While I'm not full time in the Bay Area, and can't help much with the ground team in the lead up to the event, I can do behind the scenes stuff, like contacting people/places, scouting locations, putting together a bid, nailing down dates, etc., and helping to run the actual event. What do you have in mind?
