Information for Meeting Planners
Each program is assigned to an experienced, professional coordinator. Your coordinator will work with you step-by-step from the initial planning stages all the way through the conference closing. Your coordinator can make arrangements for all necessary services such as meeting space, lodging, food services, registration, personalized website, on-site assistance, financial management, marketing, audio-visual support, transportation, and printing services. Regardless of the season, the Office of Conference Services is available to provide year-round coordination services for meetings on the CSU campus or at other venues, both local and international. Our dedicated staff received the 2013 Outstanding Institutional Achievement Award from ACCED-I.
