JETAA North California (JETAANC) will host the 2012 JETAAUSA National Conference in San Francisco, Thursday, 10/26 through Sunday, 10/28.
5. About SF
Action item for attending delegates:
In keeping with national conference tradition, we are requesting that each chapter bring omiyage (food) from your local area. There will be approximately 60 conference participants. A box or bag of food would be considered just fine–it does not need to be individually wrapped or fancy. We will put the snacks out with a note describing each chapter’s omiyage for everyone at the conference. As with omiyage in Japan, you do not have to spend a lot of money; this is a fun thing that we do to learn a little more about each chapter’s local culture.
The Conference location will be at the Consulate General of Japan in SF. The address is 50 Fremont Street, SF. It is a short 17 minute walk from the hotel to the CG. See link for directions. While the program details are still being determined, you should know that the conference will start officially on Friday morning around 8:00am. While the hotel offers coupons for breakfast at Lefty O’Doul’s, a restaurant bar around the corner, continental breakfast will be provided at the CG prior to the conference every morning. The conference will last all day Friday and Saturday with breaks in between until around 5:00pm, ending on Sunday around 12:00pm. Please plan your travel accordingly.
The hotel will be the King George Hotel located at 334 Mason Street, SF. It is a short 7 minute walk from the Powell Street station to the hotel.
The Northern California chapter is excited to host you, and we look forward to seeing you all in San Francisco!
