Livable LA Summit

  • UCLA Luskin Conference Center 425 Westwood Plaza Los Angeles, CA, 90095 United States (map)

This April, the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs will mark its 25th anniversary with the inaugural convening of a research-informed, cross-sector conversation about the major issues facing the Los Angeles region. The summit will focus not on problems but on solutions.

Because seating is limited, blocks of seats have been set aside for city officials, government entities and agencies that are involved in policymaking. Through March 29, interested organizations may reserve those seats in clusters of five by contacting:

Julie Straub

Assistant Dean
(310) 206-8162

On April 1, any seats not reserved by an organization will be opened to individuals on a first-come, first-served basis. Individuals should reserve their seats here.

Registration is scheduled to close on April 7 for all seats to the Luskin Summit.
