2020 Large-Scale Managers Workshop

​​​Orange County, CA | October 7 – October 10, 2020​

The 2020 Large-Scale Managers Workshop is cancelled as of June 18, 2020. ​

For more than 30 years, the Large-Scale Managers Workshop has been an opportunity to learn, share best practices, kick the tires, visit communiti​es, experience local culture and spend time with colleagues and friends. As we weighed the decision to cancel this important event, it became clear we would be unable to deliver the experience you have come to expect. With uncertainty surrounding health and travel, CDC guidelines and state requirements in mind, we know we've come to the proper decision for you and our communities. ​

​​​​Journey out west to the heart of Orange County, California to learn how the master-planned communities of Lake Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, Ladera Ranch and Rancho Mission Viejo have stood the test of time. Nestled between the mountains and the sea, these four award-winning communities stretch through some of the most idyllic areas of Southern California. Come and be inspired by the legacy of the land, thought-provoking discussions, educational seminars and genuine California hospitality.

The workshop will beg​in with registration on Wednesday and conclude Saturday before lunch.  ​​​​Attendees who plan to participate in the golf tournament are encouraged to arrive on Tuesday, October 6th. ​​​​​

Partic​​ipants should plan to remain until late afternoon on Saturday, October 10th. Enjoy accommodations at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa in Dana Point, CA, with transportation included to and from all seminars and tours.​


Registration is limited to 120 large-scale manager attendees.​
