(SFC) LA 2024 Vice Chair and Director of Athlete Relations, Janet Evans will be traveling to Glasgow to attend the Host City 2015 conference this week (November 9-10). Evans, also a four-time Olympic swimming champion, will have the opportunity to learn from the experiences of leaders from all over the Olympic Movement.

LA 2024 Chairman, Casey Wasserman stated, "We are delighted that Janet is attending the Host City conference in Glasgow with so many Olympic experts present. We are very much in our 'looking, listening and learning' phase and these types of events are an invaluable part of this process."

This is the beginning of a busy period for the LA 2024 Candidature Committee. They will also be attending the International Olympic Committee (IOC) 2024 Candidate City workshops in Lausanne from November 19-20 and the European Olympic Committees (EOC) General Assembly in Prague from November 20-21.

"We will also send a significant LA 2024 delegation to Lausanne for the IOC 2024 Candidate City workshops; which will provide the ideal opportunity to engage and interact with the IOC on the path ahead," added Wasserman.

Wasserman concluded, "The EOC General Assembly in Prague represents a further opportunity, after the ANOC General Assembly in Washington, D.C., to consult with the NOC family. Their athletes are at the very heart of the Olympic Movement and IOC President Thomas Bach's visionary Olympic Agenda 2020. The NOCs have a critical role in preparing and supporting athletes, so it is vital that we consult with them whenever possible."
