Las Vegas seems like the obvious choice.

I?m not sure who ?we? are in the last sentence above.  The huge cost of the London meeting is encountering extreme resistance from my money people.  Promising to keep all Feb and Oct meetings in Las Vegas might be enough to quell the fury.   Changing one of those meetings to New York is certainly not easy.   I might be able to sell the idea here for a summer reunion in 2018 in the Twin Cities  (home to 4 ex-j3 members that I know of), but there is no plan for that at this time.
