Please meet by 1:45 PM in the MVCAC registration area of the hotel. We will then walk over to the start line. The 5K will start in the historical square, take you along the water, around cannery row and back. We also have some swag at the end!
This year we are only providing 1 lunch on Monday, which is also the dedicated poster display time. We will have a light continental on the AM break and coffee throughout the day for both days of the conference.
All speakers have been given the information on how to upload their talks and where they can do it while onsite. If you are a speaker and have not received this information, please let
Gold card scanning
Once again we will be scanning gold cards as the main way to track attendance for CE's. Please make sure you have yours with you.
DPR Sign in
There will be an area next to the registration desk where the DPR and REHS sign in sheets will be housed. You must sign in in this area to receive these credits as well, the gold card scanning does not work for these two items.
Volunteers are still needed!
Please use the link below if you are able to give a little bit of your time during the conference. Volunteers are the back bone of making this conference work so if you can help out, please do!
We are in need of a couple more people to help with the 5K (very easy, handing out bottled water or directing the runners) and a few reg desk shifts. Thank you to everyone for your help!
Weather in Monterey
Monterey is known to have a light fog layer year round, which can keep the temperatures a little on the cool side.
