Petrified Forest National Park hosted this annual, somewhat informal, meeting in 2009. This year the host is Arizona Western College in sunny, warm Yuma Arizona. The dates will be February 12-14 and if I'm not mistaken there should be a field trip to El Golfo, Mexico. Back in the late 1990s I helped out with some of this work and it is just incredible. Great exposures near the mouth of the Colorado River and lots of fossils (I forgave that they were late Pleistocene). Fred Croxen and his collaborators have been doing great work here for more than a decade. Plus, it will be warm in February and you are in Mexico on the Gulf of California. For those of you in the western US, what else are you going to do in February? Freeze?
