February 24 2010 Editor Assistance Newsletter
We seem to have found the PERFECT hotel for our upcoming Chicago gathering on May 21-23, 2010! It's the Hilton Garden Inn by O'Hare airport. It has a free continual shuttle to the airport, has a really cool "playful" pool plus hot tub - and it's right on a forest!
Go to Maps.Google.Com and put in
2930 South River Road Des Plaines IL
(cut and paste that) - you'll see the hotel borders the Cook County forest preserve, with a river, lakes, walking trails and more! They have almost 300 species of birds in there, and deer too!
A detailed map from the Forest Preserve people is here -
choose "region 3" to see all the particulars.
The hotel's also an easy train ride into the city, so we can see the sights as well!
Air fares are REALLY cheap right now - less than $180 rountrip from Boston, for example - so now is absolutely the time to jump on reservations. Grab the hotel reservations too of course! We aren't doing any group rate - we've found in the past that it's cheapest to use online engines to get a hotel room.
If you'd like a roommate to save costs, swing by the Editor forum area and we'll help you out!
We're having discussions in the Editor forum about what seminars to offer. We're focusing on the trio of goals editors have asked for - education, stress reduction, and getting in shape. We'll have seminars on how to manage time, how to schedule, how to plan out goals, meditation, yoga, walking, how to brainstorm new ideas, how to juggle family needs, and much more! Let us know what your interests are and we'll tailor sessions to help you out!
We'll have the Skype laptops available for a few sessions too - although I'm not sure they'll work in the forest :)
This location really looks spectacular, and with the low flight fares, we hope to see you there! Jump on those tickets while they're so cheap!
