2016 CLFMI Annual Meeting


Members and guests should sign up now for CLFMI’s 56th Annual Meeting, being held November 9-11, 2016 at the Kimpton Palomar Hotel-San Diego. The Hotel is located in downtown San Diego, just 10 minutes from San Diego International Airport, within a 5-minute walk of Westfield Horton Plaza, and within 15 minutes of other popular attractions like Petco Park and Balboa Park. The hotel welcomes guests with conveniences like a full-service spa, an outdoor pool, and a 24-hour fitness center.

ROOM RESERVATIONS: Members must make their own hotel reservations by calling the reservation number at 1-619-515-3088. The cutoff date for room reservations is October 1, 2016. After that date (or earlier if our room block is sold out) we can’t guarantee either the CLFMI rate or availability of rooms. There are two types of rooms in our block: Skyline Guestrooms ($259) and a limited number of Skyline Corner Suites ($289). You can view both rooms styles at http://www.hotelpalomar-sandiego.com/

Scheduling Your Travel For those members who are arriving on Tuesday, we will be holding a very informal Election Night Party to watch the national (U.S.) election returns.
The meeting officially starts with our Welcoming Reception on Wednesday, November 9 at 7:00pm.

The meeting ends at noon on Friday, November 11. We do have a small block of rooms reserved at the Palomar for Tuesday night (for early arrivals) and for Friday and Saturday nights if you’d like to stay over and enjoy this beautiful setting at our group rates.
