The meeting place is the Marriott Biltmore Hotel in Santa Barbara.

This is an annual affair for the California members of the Society, at which one of the sections acts as the host. For this year, it is the Los Angeles Metropolitan Section, and once again the committee selected the familiar site where they have gathered before. The theme for the joint meeting is "ENERGY— Transportation, Estimation and Regulation."

In the evening, there will be a dinnerdance, to which all are invited. For Sunday morning, a special brunch is planned at a prominent local restaurant.
