Hollywood SignSpring Updates

Planning is nearly complete for the 68th Annual Conference of the California Geographical Society, this year held in the shadow of the Hollywood Hills, on the campus of Los Angeles City College.

This year we'll convene May 2-4, 2014 and we'll be co-hosted by the Los Angeles Geographical Society and LA City College.

This year's theme: Los Angeles: A World City by Subway and Light Rail. Los Angeles City College has a subway stop (red line) essentially beneath the Science and Technology building, and so we are planning to use public transportation as much as possible, not only to transport participants to and from the conference, but we are also planning a number of field trips by subway and/or light rail.

The 2014 SPRING Bulletin is available! (.pdf)


It's time to think about writing something for publication in our annual journal! Articles from faculty, independent researchers, undergraduate and graduate students are all welcome!

Got something good? Read our annual Call for Papers at the CGS blogspot.

Our newsletter, the CGS Bulletin has gone green!
Summer-Fall 2011 Newsletter

Partly in response to significant increases in publishing and delivery costs, and a number of complaints about the irony of an enviornmentally-aware organization using the US Postal service to deliver mail, we have decided to deliver it to you electronically. It will be sent out via an email attachment several times a year, and you can always find a copies here on our website.

If you'd like to support the pulp and paper industries, you are still welcome to print a copy of the bulletin and carry it proudly with you to Starbucks!
