After careful review of the recent events pertaining to COVID-19, the California Association for Geotechnical Engineers (CalGeo) has cancelled its 50th Annual Conference in Squaw Valley scheduled to take place April 22-24. This decision was not taken lightly and was rendered after reviewing the latest information from the World Health Organization (WHO), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), State of California, and local governments. The health, safety and well-being of our attendees, staff, exhibitors, sponsors and the communities they live in is of utmost importance.

For those signed up for our conference or short courses, we will provide a full refund, unless you prefer to credit your account for our 2021 conference. If you would like to request a full refund, please complete this online form HERE >>

If the refund request is not completed, we will assume you would like your registration fees applied towards the cost of next year’s conference.
For your convenience, there is no need to contact our office to submit written cancellation requests.

All hotel room reservations have been cancelled and you will receive a refund of any deposit paid to the Resort at Squaw Creek.
