Selected Scenes from IAL 2005 In Boston

Notables from the Meetings:

There were 175 pre-registered Annual Meeting attendees and 52 pre-registered Voice Institute
attendees ... and counting walk-ins, staff and vendors a total of about 300 actually attended.
19 vendors, including companies from Germany, France, and Poland, had product displays.
Attendees came from the USA, Armenia, Germany, Poland, Netherlands,
Kenya, Norway, France, Japan, Canada and Puerto Rico.

George Ackerman was presented with a posthumous Lifetime Achievement Award.
Scientific Achievement Awards were presented to Drs. Eric Blom and Mark Singer.
Biloxi is cancelled for IAL 2006.  Cities under consideration now are; Chicago, Denver,
Burlington (VT), Las Vegas, Charlottesville (VA), San Antonio, and Reno.
Preferred dates and hotel rates will be difficult to get with less than a year to work with
thus the final choice will be a combination of several factors that minimize IAL costs
and risks, while basing in a geographical area that will attract attendees.
