Pacific Northwest Region Forum 2017 - May 18-20

                     2017 ANNUAL FORUM

May 18 – 20, Embassy Suites, So San Francisco

Come join us in the City by the Bay for the Pacific Northwest Region Annual Forum!  San Francisco is the cultural, commercial and financial center of Northern California, the birthplace of the United Nations and the only consolidated city-county in California.  It is only about 47.9 square miles in area making it the smallest county in the state; however, with about 18,500 people per square mile it is the most densely settled large city in the state and the second most densely populated city in the US after New York City. 

A popular tourist destination, San Francisco is known for its cool summers, fog, steep rolling hills and an eclectic mix of architecture and landmarks including the Golden Gate Bridge, Cable Cars, Alcatraz, Fisherman’s Wharf, Coit Tower, Lombard Street and Chinatown to name a few. 

Please come in early and join us for a City Bus Tour on Thursday, 5/18/17 so that you can experience all of these amazing places.  There is no charge for the tour, but we do need to know how many to expect, so be sure to register for the Free Tour when you submit your registration form.  The tour will commence from the Embassy Suites at 2:00pm and will return at 5:00pm.  Those who wish to stay in downtown San Francisco for the evening and not return to the hotel may certainly do so.  Both Caltrain and BART run to South San Francisco until midnight - Caltrain station is a short walk to the hotel.  And, of course, there is always Uber or Lyft.
