Thanks for this clarification. Just to be totally sure I understand,
do you mean the following algorithm?

   For an interim meeting at time X, sum up all the prior meetings
   for each of the regions. The region with the fewest prior
   meetings is then selected for the next interim. [0]

Is this what you guys have in mind?

suggest a mechanism if you need one :)
