Spring Institute 2012 Update
Members discussed possible sites for the 2012 Spring Institute.  CASC staff has reviewed possible locations that can house and provide training space for a conference the size of the Spring Institute and presented three possible locations for the conference.  After discussion, Council voted to have the Spring Institute in Norfolk in 2012.
