The 2021 RFSI Forum will be held at the beautiful Oakland Scottish Rite Center. Situated on the shores of Lake Merritt, the OSRC was built in 1927 with over 1,000 craftsmen working to complete the ornate building known for its hand-carved ceilings and majestic staircases. This art-deco treasure offers the kind of ambiance that is rarely found in meeting venues today.

The OSRC offers free parking for meeting attendees
