ICIS 2012...here we come!
Dear AIS Member:

We will soon be gathering in Orlando for one of the most prestigious gatherings of AIS members and IS scholars and professionals.  Conference Chair Joey George and his team have planned an excellent program.  They, along with AIS staff, look forward to being of service during the conference. 

Here are a few last minute reminders and tips to help you with final preparations and to enjoy the conference. 
Safe travels!
Best regards,
Pete Tinsley, CAE

To give attendees more value and flexibility, we have replaced conference breakfasts with breakfast debit cards.  Upon registration, all full-conference regular and guest registrants will receive a debit card valued at 35 USD in order to purchase your breakfasts during the conference. You may use the debit card to purchase breakfast at any of the restaurants/cafes in the hotel or any place you choose outside of the hotel.  You may also use this card to purchase drinks at the Welcome Reception.

Listen to Conference Chair Joey George talk about creative ways to use this new conference feature!
