Partner materials such as the Executive Booklet and Presentation Slides will be available for download in the Partner Portal (login required) in the weeks prior to the meeting. Information from past meetings is available there also, including links to videos. We encourage Partners to log-in to the Portal early so that new accounts can be activated prior to the meeting.

Hotel Information

Berkeley has a few hotels close to campus and many located slightly further in Emeryville. The Graduate, a boutique-style hotel, is less than 2 blocks from Thursday’s Plenary Session and the newly built Residence Inn in downtown Berkeley is closest to Friday’s Executive Session. An older historic hotel, by Bay Area architect Julia Morgan is the Berkeley City Club. For more options, please see
