2018 COAST Annual Meeting
9:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m., Thursday April 19, 2018
CSU Chancellor’s Office, Long Beach
401 Golden Shore Long Beach, CA 90802-4210


The COAST Annual Meeting will be held Thursday, April 19, 2018, at the CSU Chancellor's Office in Long Beach and we hope you will be able to join us. COAST members from throughout the system are invited and encouraged to attend-we would love to see you there! Our budget allows us to reimburse each campus for travel costs for two individuals, and each campus determines on its own who those two individuals will be. We suggest you coordinate with your Campus Representatives if you are interested in attending the COAST Annual Meeting next spring. 


​Travel Information


Hotel: A block of rooms has been reserved at the Hilton Long Beach for 4/18/18 (the night before the meeting) and will be paid for directly by COAST. Reservation of these rooms will be available once we start accepting RSVPs in early 2018. 

Eligible Reimbursements: COAST will reimburse each campus for eligible travel expenses for up to two travelers following travel. Additional individuals are welcome and encouraged to attend at their own expense. Lodging reimbursement will be limited to one night unless prior arrangements with COAST are confirmed. If COAST will be reimbursing your campus for your travel, please plan to be at the meeting in its entirety.

Reimbursement Process: Travelers must submit a travel claim to their home campus to receive reimbursement. Please work with your Department to arrange travel, get any necessary paperwork in order, authorize travel prior to trip, and reimburse travel after your trip. Your Department will reimburse you, and COAST will then reimburse your Department once we receive documentation that you have filed your travel claim.

To seek reimbursement from COAST, please have your Department staff submit a copy of travel claim and/or documentation to Beth Pardieck. COAST will reimburse via CPO fund transfer to your campus. For any travel related questions, please contact Beth Pardieck, COAST Coordinator (epardieck@csumb.edu or 831-582-4209).
