The Westwood Club: Directions and Parking

The Westwood Club is located at 6200 West Club Lane at the corner of Fitzhugh Avenue and West Club Lane. From the W. Broad/Glenside Drive intersection, travel east on Broad for about 1.5 miles and turn right on West Club Lane. In a couple of blocks, you will see the Club on the left.
 
PRSA members and guests can park anywhere in the Club’s large parking lot. We will put a sign saying “PRSA Banquet Entrance” outside by the banquet entrance at a covered entryway along West Club Lane. The banquet entrance is closest to the registration area and ballroom for our lunch and program. However, if you don’t see the sign and come in through the Club’s main entrance, someone can easily direct you down the hallway to the ballroom for our program.
