Sixty miles east of Los Angeles, you’ll find the sweet and zesty city of Riverside, where the California citrus industry was born. But a day spent in the Inland Empire hub is not just about the delicious oranges (and lemons, limes, and grapefruits). Roam around and you’ll find a wealth of unique history, architecture and cuisine.
The incredible 40th NASO Sports Officiating Summit was held in Denver, Colorado. Not only was it the first time we were back together again in-person since 2019, but we had a record number of Summit Support Organizations that made the event possible.
