The Peppermill Resort in Reno, NV was chosen for many reasons. First and foremost, we strive to hold our meetings in all the different regions of our Section, as these meetings always invigorate and strengthen the local Chapters. The Nevada and UNR Student Chapters are already on board to provide much needed support throughout the meeting process (and for this we are quite grateful). Second, this hotel is able to offer us extensive meeting space at no cost to the Section in exchange for the hotel rooms our attendees will book. (And the hotel rooms were all recently renovated, and cost as little as $59 per night.) Finally, and this is really cool, the Peppermill is a very green facility for all the regular reasons, plus more. They harness geothermal energy which now heats 100% of the Resort’s domestic water and mechanical heat throughout the 2.1 Million square feet foot facility, 24/7. A tour of the geothermal plant will be offered during our meeting.
