Greetings from the Central conference, our plan of action for transportation to CHIC 2012 is that the Central Conference transportation team has decided that we will offer conference bussing to and from CHIC as our mode of transportation for CHIC 2012. If churches want to use a different avenue for their transportation needs they will have the freedom to do so.

Chad Harrison is serving as the main lead for the Central conference and has been working with Brian Alnes in the negotiating of bus terms and conditions. At this point we are anticipating a price point between $170 and $180 for conference transportation. We are also planning our information packets to be sent out to the conference churches sometime around August 20th.

GENERAL GUIDELINES

• Block out seats early. Up to eleven months before your travel date you can “block out” seats without giving names or a deposit.  Generally this will give you the best price as well as allow you to fly in and out of the Knoxville airport, which is very small.
• Many have had success soliciting donations of air miles from their congregation. This could be a great way to save money. Be aware, though, that you may have to send small groups on several different airlines, which can get complicated.
• Get help! Ask parents or others in your congregation to call the airlines, get quotes, and put together possible itineraries. Don’t make CHIC travel your full-time job!
• If you are going to CHIC for the first time consider partnering with someone who has been before. Our CHIC Liaison team would be glad to help you out in any way.
