When I was in graduate school I was blessed to be able to attend many of the CALPEG (California Population and Evolutionary Genetics Group) meetings (at least, I think that is what CALPEG stood for).
These meetings were critical to me in many ways but especially since I ended up doing molecular evolution work in a lab that was not focused on molecular evolution. CALPEG gave me a community.
SO am posting here about the first one I attended - the 1992 meeting which I think was in San Deigo.
Here is a PDF of my notes and other materials: https://phylogenomics.files.wordpress.com/2014/05/calpeg-1992.pdf
I am including pics of the pages below:
