The 2024 Pacific Division Annual Meeting will be held at the University of San Diego on 17-20 June.

A Day at the Balboa Park Museums (20 June)


Instead of more traditional field trips on the final day of the conference, the Pacific Division leadership chose to take advantage of the amazing collection of museums at Balboa Park. Being in one location on our last day allows attendees to both customize their experience (select museums and museum tours) while still being part of the larger group and able to get together and have lunch/snacks. A complete list of Balboa Park's museums can be found here.  The San Diego Zoo is also at Balboa Park.
