The Quinism Foundation invites you to join us for our 2020 Annual Meeting, to be held again in the Vermont Room of the Hotel Coolidge in the historic village of White River Junction, Vermont from Monday April 27th, 2020 through Tuesday, April 28th, 2020 - a short, two-hour drive or less from major New England airports.
This year's meeting will feature a variety of educational sessions, including lectures and presentations by executive director Dr. Remington Nevin. Dr. Nevin will review the conclusions and significance of the recent National Academies report on mefloquine, and will provide an update on the status of international legal and disability claims. If you are a veteran with a pending mefloquine-related disability claim, or a veteran's advocate interested in learning more about this issue, this meeting is for you. A full meeting agenda will be available soon.
When making plans to attend, please plan on arriving no later than 9am on Monday, April 27th, 2020, and departing no sooner than 5pm on Tuesday, April 28th, 2020, in order to attend the entire two-event.
We recommend that guests arrive in White River Junction no later than Sunday, and depart Wednesday morning, to take full advantage of the opportunity to enjoy the villlage and your time here. White River Junction is conveniently located at the intersection of Interstates 89 and 91, on the border of Vermont and New Hampshire, and is a two-hour drive or less from major New England airports including Boston Logan International in Boston, MA; Burlington International in Burlington, VT; Manchester-Boston Regional Airport in Manchester, NH, and Bradley International in Windsor Locks, CT, served by major national airlines.
We recommend staying at our conference hotel, the quaint, historic Hotel Coolidge. Book now as accomodations at this historic hotel are limited. For those seeking more modern accomodations, a variety of national chains are available about mile away from the village center.
White River Junction is a charming, walkable railroad village with plenty to see and do throughout the day. While staying in the village, you can choose from a range of restaurants for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, including the Hotel Coolidge's own Cafe Renee, nearby Tuckerbox and Piecemeal Pies, Phnom Penh Sandwich Station, Big Fatty's BBQ, Trailbreak Taps + Tacos, Elixir, and Thyme. For those arriving early, consider taking in a show at White River Junction's own stage company, Northern Stage. If you enjoy the outdoors, pack your walking shoes and enjoy hiking the nearby Quechee Gorge, or Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Park. For a change of scenery, plan to visit the nearby villages of Norwich, Woodstock, and Hanover, NH, home of Dartmouth College.
Funds raised through registration will help fund the cost of renting our meeting facility, the Vermont Room; and providing attendees with refreshments and social events.
You can register now to attend the two-day event in person and donate in support of your attendance. If you cannot travel to Vermont to attend the meeting in person, your donation will support the hosting of the meeting, and archiving of meeting materials for non-attendees.
We look forward to meeting you soon at our 2020 Annnual Meeting!
