IVI Meeting – Portland, OR

Oct. 16 - 18, 2017

Hosted by IVI Foundation

Meeting Agenda

We are holding our October IVI Meeting from Monday, Oct. 16 -- Wednesday, Oct. 18. We are staying at the Courtyard by Marriott Portland City Center, cost of the room is $179 per night with our IVI-LXI block rate. I'm suggesting a couple of things:

1. Make your room reservation using the registration link below as soon as possible, and don't forget to register with Julie, so you're in the headcount for catering. (Julie Minor has replaced Barb Estes as administrator/bookkeeper for the IVI Foundation.)

2. As always, please stay at this hotel in Portland, instead of somewhere else, because we need everyone's participation to meet the terms of the contract. If we fall short of our promised room reservations, IVI and LXI will pay penalties for the lost revenue. IVI is overlapping the LXI meeting on Wed. morning for our joint Cybersecurity meeting as you know, and we have estimated that IVI and LXI will both be present at Wednesday's lunch.


IVI Meeting Fee:

We will be trying something new at this meeting to make the collection of meeting fees more efficient. Bob will estimate the meeting fees for attendees and call-ins prior to the meeting, and collect credit card payments for the attendees' meeting fees in Portland. For the call-ins, their meeting fees will be collected after the Board verifies who called in.

Attendees meeting fee: $310

Call-in meeting fee: $155

Portland has numerous great attractions, many of which are right outside the Courtyard Marriott City Center front door! Click hereto view our walking map.


Portland City Center
Portland’s Downtown District is its cultural nexus (the opera, the symphony, galleries and museums, financial institutions, national retailers, the West End shopping district, public art projects, cinemas, the waterfront, Major League Soccer, a world-class farmers market and Portland State University).


The Pearl District
Portland’s tony “SoHo” district is a prime example of well-planned urban planning and renewal, boasting boutique shopping, microbreweries, high-rise lofts, galleries, fine dining, parks, coffee shops, grocers, performing arts venues and an electrifying jazz club.

Old Town-Chinatown
As its name implies, this neighborhood is where Portland got its start. Located just two blocks from the hotel, this district’s wide boulevards house some of the city’s finest galleries, coffee shops, restaurants and clubs, as well as Union Station, Lan Su Chinese Garden and the Saturday Market.

CUT-OFF DATE for Room Reservations:

Reservations by attendees must be received on or before Sept. 29, 2017. At the Cut-Off Date, the hotel will review the reservation pick up for the Event, release the unreserved rooms for general sale, and determine whether or not it can accept reservations based on a space- and rate-available basis at the IVI/LXI meeting group rate after this date.

Registration for meeting:

To make sure we have you in the headcount for food and nametags, please email Barb Estes to register for the meeting.
