2016 Study Tour


2016 Study Tour – VERMONT
September 18-20

In July 2016 the MIA+BSI will be unveiling a New England chapter, so we expect the VT study tour to attract a strong contingency from Vermont and surrounding New England regions.  We are tentatively planning for 2 buses with 85 attendees and the below proposed schedule, which has similar stops as year’s past, with a few additions for a fresh program. [subject to change]

NOTICE:  Only NON-LODGING Registration at $450 pp is now available for this event.

The Capitol Plaza Hotel room block is full.  Lodging is now “on your own”.   See alternate lodging options below.  MIA+BSI bus will pick up and drop off at these hotels for main event transportation.
