In November, the average day-time highs are 60-70 degrees and the average evening temperatures range from as low as 50-60 degrees. Meeting rooms may be cool due to air conditioning. While weather is generally pleasant in November, we recommend you bring an umbrella, as showers can appear unexpectedly.


If it would take you more than eight hours to drive to this conference, ASGA recommends that you consider flying. Top save money, you could fly into Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). There are many more flight choices at LAX and ticket prices are cheaper.

There are other airports, including Santa Monica, Bob Hope, and Burbank, in the area and they may offer more convenient schedules and pricing.


There are taxis available at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) but they are expensive and are not convenient. Los Angeles is a huge city and is very spread out. It is recommended that you get a rental car or van.

Rental Car

ASGA recommends that you rent a car while at this conference. You will need transportation to the conference location, restaurants, and LA-area attractions.
