 2018 San Diego Symposium Guide


“…another very well executed and informative Epsten, Grinnell and Howell Legal Symposium is now history. The whole conference is very well organized, agenda/clock driven, and “lesson learned” focused for the benefit of all of us who attend this annual event. Our HOA owners benefit from the quality and quantity of the information shared at this conference. It takes a whole lot of time and money resources to make a professional conference like this happen. My thanks to all of you for investing the resources required to make us better HOA serving Board members.” – John S.
