Traveling to the Conference
We chose Los Angeles Trade Technical College to host our bi-annual conference, which gives us a venue for our plenaries, workshops, and celebrations that is aligned with our goals and values. Los Angeles Trade Technical College "advances communities through pathways to academic, career, and transfer success that empower students to achieve career technical certificates, associate degrees, transfer, and employment."
We are excited to partner with a centrally located college that gives us a spacious, outdoor location for our large gatherings. It's easily accessible by public transit in downtown Los Angeles.
