Indianapolis to host 2004 CoC.

The NLC Board of Directors has selected Indianapolis, Ind., as the site for the 2004 Congress of Cities.

Speaking to the NLC Board at its meeting in Atlanta, Indianapolis Mayor Bart Peterson offered a compact package of downtown hotels, convenient air travel from throughout the country, broad local experience in hosting major conventions, and the firm commitment of city leaders, the convention and visitors bureau, and the residents of Indianapolis to welcome delegates with open arms.

"We have the ability and the experience to make 2004 a great Congress of Cities," Peterson told the Board.

Joining Peterson at the Board presentation were Councilors Beulah Coughenour and Rozelle Boyd, both long-time leaders in Indianapolis and NLC, Convention and Visitors Bureau President Bill McGowan, and Indiana League of Cities and Towns Executive Director Mike Quinn.

The dates for the conference in Indianapolis are November 30 through December 4, 2004. Indianapolis hosted the Congress of Cities in 1972 and 1984.

On a motion from NLC Past President Bill Hudnut, who was mayor of Indianapolis in 1984, and a second by Board Member Sonya Margerum, mayor of West Lafayette, Ind., the Board voted unanimously to select Indianapolis as the site for the 2004 Congress of Cities.

"Listening to this presentation brought back wonderful memories," Hudnut said in making the motion. "And I know that the city will do a great job hosting another successful Congress of Cities.

Other confirmed sites for upcoming conferences are Salt Lake City, December 37, 2002, and Nashville, December 9-13, 2003.
