There will be limited free parking available for this seminar on our surface lot at 15th and Olive Streets (NW corner). The gate will be up, so you won’t need to get a token to leave that lot after the seminar. Remember, though—first come, first served—and parking is no longer free at meters on Saturdays (so car pool or use Metro-Link if at all possible).
