Meeting to be held at the Monona Terrace in Madison, WI

Monona Terrace is a convention center like no other, rising from the blue expanse of Lake Monona and just two blocks from the State Capitol and streets full of shops and restaurants. There are nearly one thousand hotel rooms within walking distance of Monona Terrace. In September 2015, Monona Terrace was certified as a “green building” at the Gold Level by the U.S. Green Building Council’s prestigious LEED program.
