Since I just read the bylaws and this was just bumped... I think we need to elect a Vice Chair, don't we?

Your right!  That completely slipped by me.

I'll give party members a day or two to declare their candidacy.

I'd be comfortable with that.  You are one of our founding members after all. Smiley

You would expect them all to have internet, wouldn't you?

I guess we should hold a vote then.

I probably would have voted for Jbrase, but I wasn't sure hence why I didn't vote when it was opened.

Tampa Bay is experienced and hospitable, has the venues and support, and is a key political community, comparable to Atlasia as a whole in age, education, diversity, martial status, and income, with the state's largest media market, a large block of independent voters, and a balanced mix of political geography. Surrounding a Tampa Bay convention area is first-class hotels, world-famous attractions, and local residents who are consistently recognized as extraordinary ambassadors of hospitality. With over 30 million visitors a year, Tampa Bay welcomes the world every day, and we look forward to making the 2012 Imperial Bloc Convention feel at home.

There is nothing conventional about Tampa Bay’s convention and meeting facilities. Nor is there anything conventional about the area’s ability to so impressively assemble everything needed - and more - for the Imperial Bloc Convention within a single, central location. This includes the main convention area, media work space, staff office space, and unique facilities to accommodate special events. When it comes to addressing the two major convention venues, it all comes down to location, size and technical capabilities. The Tampa Bay Times Forum, the main convention area, overlooks the nearby Tampa Convention Center, one of two proposed sites of the media work space. Towering between these two buildings, the 717-room Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina looks as if it were custom-made to be the headquarters hotel. Within an easy walk from this convention complex are the recommended locations for the office staff facilities, additional accommodations, plentiful parking, and flexible staging areas for transportation systems.

The Tampa Bay area’s more than 40,000 hospitable hotel rooms and greatly exceeds the room requirements of the Imperial Bloc Convention. 70% of the room block is within 20 minutes of the Tampa Bay Times Forum and stands ready to respond positively to any additional housing needs. Grand historic resorts (such as the Don CeSar Beach Resort and the Renaissance Vinoy Resort), high rise luxury hotels with contemporary designs and modern conveniences (such as the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina), cozy bed and breakfasts that cater to travelers by creating the comforts of home and much more beckon travelers fortunate enough to stay within the Tampa Bay area.

From the skyways to the highways, all major roads, railways, waterways and flight routes lead to Tampa Bay. The area’s abundant network of publicly and privately operated transportation systems already in place, coupled with those under construction, keep traffic flowing smoothly throughout the entire area. Spacious, prevalent parking facilities put attendees just steps away from the main convention area and other key locations, contributing to the overall accessibility and convenience of travel throughout Tampa Bay. As the cradle of commercial aviation, it is only natural that Tampa Bay boasts one of the most popular and admired airports in the world, Tampa International Airport (TPA). Today, the Tampa Bay area is served by two stellar international airports, Tampa International and St. Petersburg-Clearwater International, as well as eight regional airports located within a 50-mile radius of each other. MacDill Air Force Base, home of U.S. Central Command, provides another possible flight service option for government dignitaries.

If there is one thing a Tampa Bay convention wouldn't be, it's boring. The multiple entertainment options, from art museums such as the Tampa Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, the Straz Center for the Performing Arts, and the newly refurbished Salvador Dali Museum, to natural destinations such as Honeymood/Caladesi Island State Parks, Anclote Key Preserve, Egmont Key, the Skyway Fishing Pier, Sunken Gardens, the Tampa Aquarium, the Lowry Park Zoo, and Dinosaur World, to sporting venues such as Raymond James Stadium (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), Tropicana Field (Tampa Bay Rays), and the Tampa Bay Times Forum (Tampa Bay Lightning), to theme parks like Busch Gardens and Adventure Island, to shopping destinations such as BayWalk, the Channel District, Tampa Riverwalk, WestShore Plaza, and Ybor City, all assure that no visitor to Tampa Bay will ever be bored during their stay.

Dining is one thing Tampa Bay is world-famous for, and convention guests will not be disappointed. Restaurants, such as Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City, The Brass Mug, Bern's Steak House, the Refinery, Colonnade, First Watch, the original Beef O'Brady's, the first Hooters, Ker's WingHouse, Crabby Bill's, the Hurricane, El Cap, the Chattaway, Ted Peters Famous Smoked Fish, Fred Fleming's Champions Barbeque, Red Mesa, the 4th Street Shrimp Store, and the Dairy Inn, are varied, plentiful, and delicious.

Our objective is to keep everyone safe in Tampa Bay. We will be successful because it is our business to protect visitors; we do it day in and day out for tens of millions of tourists each year. Attendees of the Convention will be safe because it is vitally and equally important to preserve an environment where delegates can concentrate on the Convention and the future of the Imperial Bloc. We will achieve this goal by calling upon the expertise of federal, state, local and military resources active within the Tampa Bay region.

Our track record proves this can be done. Tampa Bay safeguarded 4 NFL Super Bowls, NHL playoff and Stanley Cup games, NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament games, NHL All-Star Weekend, and annual Gasparilla Events. Each event was successfully planned and conducted without incident, an unparalleled testament to the effectiveness and professionalism of our law enforcement officers. Fans at sporting events felt the passion of competition and expressed the thrill of celebration while officers and security guards maintained a high profile presence but stayed out of the spotlight. Dignitaries and guests at all these events enjoyed the safety and security the Tampa Bay area offers while enjoying all of the amenities. Bank on this promise: Our security plan will be well orchestrated to safeguard the lives, property and peace of mind for all who arrive for the 2012 Imperial Bloc Convention.
