PolicyWest is back!
Register for the Pacific Council's annual fall conference, which will be held in person in Beverly Hills, with virtual attendance options.
We are delighted to welcome our community back to in-person gatherings. PolicyWest 2021 will be our first large, in-person gathering this fall.* The Pacific Council will bring you the high-quality discussion and nonpartisan dialogue that you've come to trust and appreciate from our organization. By joining us at PolicyWest, members and guests will be able to relive the unique "Pacific Council experience" that gives access to the great thinkers and do-ers of our time.
*Our members' safety is our first priority. We are requiring that anyone who chooses to attend in-person be able to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 by the event date. We will provide detailed information for all registered attendees.
