Important Capitol Swing Space Information

Important information about the Capitol Swing Space

If your meeting is in the “Swing Space” the address is 1021 O Street, Sacramento, CA 95814. It is a short walk from the Capitol grounds. Security is always enforced and there is only one entrance to the building. If the building is too full security will have people line-up outside of the building and as others are exiting they allow that number of people enter. We are not sure if there will be large crowds the day of but please plan accordingly.

Once you enter the building, elevators will be to your right. You will notice a keypad on the wall like the one below: Select the floor you’re going to. For example if your meeting is in Suite 8023 then your meeting is on the 8th floor. Select 8 on the screen. The screen will then tell you which elevator to take. Example below: The screen it says Elevator E. Look for the respective elevator, hop on, and it will take you to the right floor. Please beware that there are no buttons inside to make changes if you hop on the wrong one. If you do happen to hop on the wrong elevator you will have to exit, use the keypad and hop on the correct elevator. Offices are simple to locate. We will meet outside of the office and when the whole group has arrived, we will all go in together.
