2016 VFP National Convention

PEACE AT HOME, PEACE ABROAD
A Just and Sustainable Future for the World's Children

Online Convention and Dorm Registration are now closed

Convention and Dorm registration will reopen in Berkeley on Thu, Aug 11th in the Administration Building at the Clark Kerr Campus of UC Berkeley.

How do I get to the site of the convention - Clark Kerr Campus of UC Berkeley?

Riding public transportation called BART or Bay Area Rapid Transit. From the San Francisco Airport take the yellow line towards Pittsburgh/Bay Point line.  You must change to either the orange or red Richmond-bound lines to get to the Ashby station.  The best places to make the change are at the 19th Street or MacArthur stations. 

From Oakland Airport you should take the orange Richmond line WHICHEVER line you take, you should get off at the ASHBY BART STATION and call the convention phone at (510) 612-6780 for van pickup. 

Also note that BART does not run all night.  If you are coming in later or earlier, you will need to arrange either a Super Shuttle or take a cab.  In that case, a cab from OAK will be substantially cheaper than one from SFO.  You will need to make similar calculations for your flight home.

Clark Kerr Campus of UC Berkeley is located at 2601 Warring Street in Berkeley, CA 94720.  When you arrive park your vehicle in the horseshoe.  You will have 15-20 minutes to register for the convention, pick up a parking pass, obtain a dorm room key, and move your vehicle to the parking lot. .

Designated parking for VFP members is in the Southwest Parking Lot at the Clark Kerr Campus of UC Berkeley.
