    Hi Folks. I'm looking for a location in SF, preferably near downtown, for about 25 students for a seminar event. This is the first time offering this topic as a seminar, so it is a bit speculative and therefore I want to keep the costs going in to a minimum. Anyone have any suggestions? THanks.

    • Nolan A.

      Hi Stu, I just received your message. Depending on the content of your seminar event there are a number of locations which might have space to satisfy your needs without any fees. From the SF Public library to many other public locations, even some corporations open up their private meeting rooms for individuals. You may have to call around, but like you said, because your project is a "bit speculative" this might be the best for you. I have a list of some of them, so please feel free to contact me, but really there are quite a few in SF alone. You will need to call around, so depending on how much time you have, will depend on what you might find.

      Nolan, Thank you. I would very much appreciate a chance to review the list. Appreciate your considerateness. Stu
