Future Political Methodology Meetings

The political methodology meetings have changed a great deal in recent years. In 1984, the first political methodology meeting was held at the University of Michigan with only a handful of participants. The 2004 Political Methodology meeting at Stanford University had over 130 participants. The 2006 meeting had 86 faculty + 53 grad students (give or take). The demand to attend the conference is high; space and other costs are limited. Plus, as the conference grows, it loses the collegiality and other social aspects of earlier meetings. What, if anything, should be done?
