Conference Venue
 ......................................................................

Flagstaff is surrounded by natural wonders and has a strong Western legacy echoing the days of the region’s pioneer ranchers, railroad builders, and lumbermen.  Rich with excitement and alive with cultural diversity, beauty, and history, Flagstaff offers a multitude of accommodations, restaurants, and night spots, as well as a wide variety of cultural, historic, and scientific attractions, including the Lowell Observatory, the Museum of Northern Arizona, Riordan Mansion State Historic Park, The Arboretum at Flagstaff, and authentic Route 66 nostalgia. 

Flagstaff’s combination of high altitude, low humidity, and diverse terrain provide mild weather conditions and clear air.  With average daytime highs of 74 F (23 C) and nighttime lows of 42 F (6 C) during the month of September, the conference participants will find the Flagstaff venue very comfortable.  At 7,000 feet (2,135 meters) elevation, Flagstaff is located in the largest contiguous ponderosa pine forest in the world.  Moreover, ecosystems spanning pion-juniper studded plateaus, high desert, green alpine forest, and barren tundra can also be found within the Flagstaff area. 

Some of the West’s most beautiful country surrounds Flagstaff, including the Coconino National Forest, the San Francisco Peaks, the Red Rocks of Sedona, the Grand Canyon National Park, Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument, Wupatki National Monument, and Meteor Crater. 

At the junction of two major U.S. interstates, served by a regional airport with many direct flights to Phoenix and an active train depot, Flagstaff is a key destination for people seeking the adventure, natural beauty, and wide open spaces of the American West.
