The meeting will be at the Hyatt Regency, Lake Tahoe, Nevada (near Incline village). The closest airport is Reno, Nevada, which is about 30 minutes away. Sacramento and San Francisco/Oakland airports are about 2 hours and 3 hours away respectively. North Lake Tahoe is a beautiful resort town known for both winter and summer sports activities. There are many world class ski resorts within a short distance of the hotel (free shuttles are available).
