Ever thought of moving AAVSO headquarters out of Boston?
I was just reading the thread on the snowstorm in Boston, and a thought crossed my mind: have we ever thought of moving HQ out of Boston? It's obviously not something easily, quickly, or lightly done. But it seems to me that maintaining a headquarters in one of the most expensive cost-of-living areas in the country, that has some terrible winter weather, and that costs those of us that travel there occasionally for meetings an arm and a leg to get there, might not be optimum in the 21st century.
My first choice would be a city more central in the United States, with a decent sized academic community, and a reasonable cost of living. A very close second would be the southwest US, maybe Tucson or Flagstaff, cities near universities, observatories, and dark sky sites that would simplify, I think, AAVSOnet operations. Wherever it was, I'm sure it would simplify meeting logistics and increase attendance.
This is just a thought I want to toss out for the far advance timeline folks to think about. ANd I'd be interested to hear from the rest of the crowd what they think.
