Notes from Session Planning Coordinator


This year's Session is coming along nicely. 


The hotel has been booked!

Room rate is again only $84 this year at the Hyatt Regency across the L Street from the Capitol Building. Reservation information will be sent out after the June JRC Meeting on June 13 - 14.  Be sure to watch for it!

Self parking is $17.00 and Valet parking is $24.00.  As always, receipts will be needed for reimbursement.



STATE RULES: You must have a RECEIPT IN YOUR NAME for your portion of room in order to be reimbursed. DO NOT walk away from the hotel reception desk until you double check the name on your room receipt.


No shuttles worries this year!


The invitation letters have been sent out to various individuals requesting participation as speakers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q - When can we start reserving hotel rooms?

A - Information will be sent out after the JRC meeting in June.


Q - Can the CSL office book my airline reservations?

A - Yes, but not until after the state budget is signed for the new fiscal year.


Q - If I reserve my own air flight, can I use a company like Priceline or one like that?

A - No!  State Rules dictate that you cannot use those kind of companies.


Q - Can my spouse come to the Session with me?

A - Yes, but their expenses CANNOT be reimbursed.  However, if your spouse would like to volunteer, they will get free lunch and free banquet dinners for every day they volunteer.  The volunteer forms will be sent out soon.  Be sure to fill them out and send them back in.


I'm excited and looking forward to seeing all of you again in October!  If you have any questions or suggestions for this year's Session, be sure to either call me at (916-710-1599) or email me at sharalike@gmail.com or csl@seniorleg.ca.gov
