Know Before You Go
To ensure a smooth day for you, here are a few housekeeping items to keep in mind. Please share this information with your registered guests.
Conference rooms tend to be chilly. Please be sure to bring a light jacket or sweater.
Please use the main valet located at the front entrance of the JW Marriott.
Parking is included with the price of your ticket until 5:00 p.m. only. Anyone who stays beyond 5:00 p.m. will be responsible to pay the $23.00 daily rate plus tax.
From the lobby, take the escalators to the second floor and follow signs for the Conference Center.
There will be AFP Volunteers guiding you to the event space located on the Diamond Level.
The address for the valet is 900 W. Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90015.
When you are ready to pick-up your car, take the escalators near the lobby entrance down to the valet pick-up counter.
We have a great line up of speakers, and you can see the day's schedule on the session page. If you are attending with other colleagues you may want to split up so that you can hear a myriad of topics and ideas that you can share with each other and take back to your organizations. All sessions are on a first-come, first-served basis. There will be many attendees, so be sure to arrive early for each session.
Registration will open at 7:45 a.m.
Breakfast burritos will be available starting at 8:00 a.m. in the Exhibitor area. You may also bring your breakfast to the general session. Please be sure to stop by and visit Exhibitor booths throughout the day! Our opening keynote will begin promptly at 8:45 a.m.
Kay Sprinkel Grace, Breakfast Keynote Speaker, will be selling her newest books:
- The AAA Way to Fundraising Success: Transform Your Board Into a Fundraising Force
- The Busy Volunteer’s Guide to Fundraising
$15 each or 3 for $40
Cash or Check Only (please bring correct cash)
Checks Payable to Kay Sprinkel Grace
