Conference registration is Saturday from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Social events will start on Sunday evening with a reception followed by the Morgan Thomas slide show and the Education Committee's fund-raising auction. Start thinking about your donated item for the auction!
Monday night be sure to join us for a catered event sponsored by Thomson Reuters at the USS Midway. Learn about the longest serving carrier in the U.S. Navy history with views of the San Diego bay from the flight deck, historic aircraft and a chance to catch up with old friends.
Tuesday, you have the evening off to explore the city. With many fantastic restaurants in Little Italy, the Gaslamp, Historic Old Town or even on Shelter or Harbor Island, you can't go wrong and each is within 15 minutes from the hotel. Need ideas, see our Things to Do page or ask us.
Wednesday, we will set sail on a Flagship Harbor Dinner cruise sponsored by Lexis. As the sun sets over the bay, we'll see the highlights of San Diego from the water while dining and dancing the night away. They even pick us up and return us right from the harbor outside of the hotel.
Thursday we will kick off the day with a fun run/walk around the harbor. Later that day the golf tournament takes place over in Coronado. Not a golf player, why not hop on the Old Town Trolley Tour. We’ll show you the whole city and even head over to Coronado during our tour.
Our hotel will be the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina. Basically, every window you look out you'll see the water. The room rate is the Federal Per Diem rate which is a mixed rate since our conference crosses fiscal years. July 27-31, 2018, it is $167.00 and from Aug 1-4, 2018 it is $153.00. Rates will be available three (3) days prior and three (3) days after the conference depending on availability. Reservations must be made by 5:00 p.m. June 27, 2018.
