Bringing DIA to the Bay

Bringing DIA to the Bay

With sunny 70 degree weather, 40+ museums, 6,400 restaurants, and 92 golf courses, we don’t need to be told twice to travel to San Diego. And this June 16 – 18th we have a great reason to pack our suitcases – the DIA 2014 50th Annual Meeting. UBC is a sponsor of the event (exhibit #923) and we have a number of exciting things planned:
