Coaches Conference
Pacific Southwest Collegiate Forensics Association

July 2, 2018

Hello, PSCFA!
We want to extend an invitation to the 2018 Pacific Southwest Collegiate Forensics Coaches Conference. We will be returning to our home away from home, the Omni Rancho Las Palmas in Rancho Mirage, California September 7th-9th.
Bryan has worked tirelessly to ensure that we received the same room and conference rates that we did last year, so a huge thank you to Bryan for all of his hard work.
This year the room rate is $149 per night with only a $5 resort fee, which includes nightly parking, in-room wireless internet, access to the fitness center, and entrance into Splashtopia! Please book your rooms by 5:00 PM on August 14, 2018. We cannot guarantee the group rate beyond this date.
You can of course call to make your reservations, but you can also use this link:

Included is the tentative schedule for the conference. At this point in time, I am looking for potential session topics. So, If you have something in mind for panel discussions, please let me know and I can either set up times for you to present, or I can contact some folks who might be able to run a session on whatever subject matter you would like to see at the conference.
Also, please see the attached Fee Sheet, which reflects the new conference fees that were passed at the Cool-Off last year.
We hope you are having a wonderful summer!
See you in September,
Roger, along with the PSCFA Executive Committee
