Meeting or Social Event Request Deadline- April 3, 2009

From Jacqueline Barnes, AAJ Convention Manager -

Plans are underway for the San Francisco Convention. The headquarter hotel will be the Hilton San Francisco where the education programs and most events will be held. Meetings and events will also be held at the Hotel Nikko and the Parc 55.

If your organization would like to hold a meeting or social event at the convention, please complete the on line request meeting event form at and return it by Friday, April 3, 2009, to my attention. All requests will be processed on a first come, first served basis. Once requests are received you will receive confirmation in writing and will be advised of the location for your event, the appropriate hotel contact person with whom to make all your logistical and catering arrangements, and the suggested audio-visual contact person with whom to make all your audio visual arrangements.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in San Francisco!

A Report from the Field –

Anthony Tarricone, AAJ President Elect

I just got back from pre-convention visit to San Francisco. It’s a great walking city, the views are spectacular. Golden Gate Park and Botanical Gardens are great places to visit. The largest digital planetarium in the world is at the California Academy of Sciences. Restaurants are sensational. Make sure to make time for Napa and a Wine tour. Visit the Ferry Terminal and over the weekend there’s a market with all the local farmers. The food is awesome and there’s wine tastings as well.
