Madison is a progressive, cosmopolitan city of 200,000. Home to the University of Wisconsin and the seat of state government, Madison offers both small town charm and a range of cultural and recreational activities usually found in much larger cities. With four lakes and over 200 parks, it is also one of the United States' most scenic cities. The conference will be held at the new state-of-the-art Monona Terrace Convention Center designed by Frank Lloyd Wright that overlooks beautiful Lake Monona about two blocks from the State Capitol.

The conference hotel is located in the heart of downtown Madison, one block from the State Capitol and within walking distance of Madison's two largest lakes. Other Madison attractions are within an easy bus ride from the hotel.
