The JW Marriott Cherry Creek, the location for the Sunday, September 10 Board / TC / UC meeting and dinner, is about a 20 minute drive (see map below) from the Renaissance Denver Stapleton, the PTG venue. As many people will likely be staying in or around the PTG venue, we recommend you take a ride share car between venues. PTG badges will be available for all attending Board / TC / UC members to pick-up on Sunday at the JW Marriott Cherry Creek during the joint meeting.

If you plan to attend the PTG, please register in advance. As a reminder, below is the link to book a hotel room within the Foundation's discounted block at the Renaissance Denver Stapleton. The room block quantity is very limited this time and will likely sell out early.
