Such decisions are not made lightly - I assure you this.  This was discussed at the last meeting, and this was an option that was not voted on.  However, this was discussed again at the end of the meeting, and some at EuroMPI.

The majority at the last meeting in Chicago were against having 2 meetings internationally. We had several votes on different formations (4-0, 3-1, and 2-2), and 3-1 was the majority vote.

It would have been fair to have a similar vote in Europe and see how the participants vote..
Did the attendance at the Vienna meeting vote on a different schedule, or is your change coming from just some concerns (which are also valid) from some people?

Can we have a formal organizational Vote by eligible organizations on this instead of just scheduling meetings based on suggestions that vary from meeting to meeting?
This vote can be done over the phone.
