However, it is worth noting that a very different (organization-based) sentiment has arisen about the March meeting since then.

1. There is fairly negative support for Japan in March.
2. There is unanimous support for Chicago in June.
3. There is clear, overwhelming support for Madrid in September
   --> many prefer a max of 1 non-US meeting per year, and want it to be Madrid/EuroMPI
4. There is strong support for Chicago in December; somewhat less support for San Jose.
