Before printing:
Our speakers/teachers have provided you with a lot of information. Remember that you do not need all of it for the conference….some is for you to “digest” at your leisure and interest.

Day self-parking at Hyatt Regency Mission Bay is free! There is a discounted self-parking rate for overnight guests.

As always, be mindful of those with allergies to fragrances. We suggest that you wear layers to adjust to the temperature in the conference rooms.

We look forward to seeing you!
