We’ve copied the convention schedule into a file that can be imported into Outlook. See attached. Some have found this a convenient way to have meeting times and locations on smart phones, instead of looking through the packet.

For PC (Windows/Outlook) users,
To import to MS Outlook:

1. Save the attached csv file to your computer (remember the location)
2. In Outllook Calendar, click on File
3. Click on Import and Export
4. Select "Import from another program or file"
5. Click on Next
6. Select "Comma Separated Value (Windows)"
7. Click on Next
8. Browse for the csv file you save and select it to import
9. Select "Replace duplicates with items imported"
10. Click on Next
11. Select "Calendar" as the destination folder
12. Click on Next
13. The import should be selected so just click on Finish
14. Synch your Smart Phone to your Outlook Calendar

Thank you for providing this helpful file. I found it also easily imported into Google Calendars.

One follow-up note for people not in the Pacific Time Zone, you will want to set your Time Zone setting in Outlook to Pacific Time, before importing the calendar. Otherwise, you are likely to have your meetings shifted as you change time zones.

For example the 6:00 AM workout will get changed to 3:00 AM when my smart phone moves from EDT to PDT.

Once you have changed your time zone and imported the schedule, don’t forget to change your time zone back to your normal zone.
