**2002 - 2003 Project Description / Goals:

Organize a party for 40-60 people that will appeal to everyone.

To create a list of places that will help people enjoy Philadelphia without straining their wallet and have this list available well in advance of the conference.

**Specific Objectives (numbers, tangible end-products):


Regarding the Social

        To find a venue for the party that will appeal to the broadest range of people and still be easy to get to go, within our budget and fun.

        To decide what to serve at this party so that everyone can have a nibble and we stay within our budget

        To pay the venue for the Social in a timely manner.

        To find out if Shuttle buses could continue to run during and after the social which will be in the Convention Center, specifically a pub that is in the building but accesses through an outside door only.

        To publicize the Social using NMRT-l, a flyer that can put on the NMRT website and put in the NMRT Drop box at the conference, and make sure the social makes it into the conference guide.

        To begin publicizing the Social in December or Early January.

Regarding the List of helpful Philly Info

        To create a list that includes 3-10 places to eat under $20.00 and still enjoy the food.

        To create a list that includes 3-10 places to stay which are as inexpensive as possible given hotel costs in the City, and still comfortable and easy to get around.

        To create a list of 5-10 fun, inexpensive must see, or must do things in Philadelphia.

        To have all of this information available by Mid November at the latest.

        Publicize the information compiled through NRMT-l, NMRT website and the NMRT drop box at the conference.
