>     Dear ALT members,
>     The executive committee is currently discussing ALT policy with
>     respect to conference planning, and before making any decisions it
>     would like to find out what the views of the membership are. So
>     far, ALT has operated on a two-year cycle, with venues alternating
>     between Europe and another location, usually North America and in
>     one case Asia (Padang).
>     The executive committee has been discussing the pros and cons of
>     this tradition, and would like to give ALT members the opportunity
>     to express their preference on two questions: the alternation
>     between conference venues and the frequency of conferences.
>     Would you like
>     1. the location of the conference to alternate between
>         a) Europe, (North) America and Other
>         b) _**/Europe and Other/* *_
>     2. the conference to be held
>         a) **/_every two years_/* *
>         b) every year
>     Independently from the questions pertaining to post-2011 policy,
>     the executive committee would also like to have an idea of how
>     members feel about the venue for ALT's conference in 2011.  We're
>     in the luxurious position of having four very good offers to host
>     this conference. One of the many considerations in choosing
>     between them is how many ALT members would have an opportunity to
>     attend. So, without prejudging the decision, the executive
>     committee would like you to indicate
>     3. if you would firmly plan to attend the ALT conference if held at:
>         a) Dartmouth (Hanover, NH, USA; late August, early September)
>         b) Hong Kong (mid June, mid October, mid August)
>         c) */_Leipzig _/*(/*_late August*/ or// early September/*_*/)
>         d) Oxford (August)
>     ALT members can express their preference by replying to this
>     e-mail, choosing from the following options:
>     *1b
>     2a
>      3c
>     *
>     The deadline for sending your response is October 15th. Thank you
>     for your cooperation!
>     On behalf of the executive committee,
>     Jean-Christophe Verstraete (secretary-treasurer)
