  • What tools and tricks can you have at the ready so you can still provide value? 
  • Think about your rush job like a race.  
  • What would you do to be race ready?  
  • How can you give the best quality possible when you haven’t the time to make it perfect?

Location and Parking


7 Hutton Centre Dr.
Santa Ana, California 92707-5794

There is another DoubleTree hotel nearby, so it’s easy to accidentally go to the wrong location if you do a search for “DoubleTree” on your phone, instead of searching for the exact address!

The DoubleTree Club offers complimentary valet parking. If you prefer to self-park, tell the valet that you’re at the hotel for an OCSTC meeting, and ask if you can park yourself.
