Attend the traditional Welcome Party and Trading Hall/Marketplace! Catch up on the latest developments, renew acquaintances, get questions answered, and enjoy California’s climate and scenery!

The Western Division has gone all out to make this a memorable time for members and their families. Questions? Go here for a complete list of contact people with the answers!
