As we explained in a post last year, Charles (Chuck) Skelton is a nationally recognized authority on the hospitality industry, especially hotel and conference facilities. He is also the chair of the Washtenaw County Accommodation Ordinance Commission (the board to which the Ann Arbor Convention and Visitors' Bureau reports). See the description of his firm and list of clients here.
Mr. Skelton evidently was concerned on hearing some of the plans afoot for a hotel and conference center in his own community and applied his skills and resources to produce a report on the likely financial outcomes of such a plan. It has been reviewed on the Local in Ann Arbor blog, and a scanned copy of the report is here.
