Sorry to hear about the demise of Online NW but hopeful it can rise from
the ashes. My first conference as a professional was Online NW.
In any event there really isn't any one person who can adequately stand
for Code4lib Conferences. The Conferences are run from the same
template and the results vary from year to year. 2015 lesson here 
I for example can tell you my experience on the planning for 2013 but
I'm willing to bet people in other years will have variations of the
same theme to say about getting the conference going.
