The U.S. Olympic Committee will meet Friday with leaders from all four U.S. cities vying for a possible 2024 Olympic bid, the first such meeting, according to The Associated Press.

The cities are Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington. The USOC is not expected to pick one city out of the four before December, if it decides to bid for 2024.

The AP called the meeting “a low-key informative session about the finances and other details about bidding for the Olympics.”

The USOC narrowed its list to those four cities in the spring and said a bid team would visit each city and then provide an update to its board of directors in September.

Potential global bids for the 2024 Olympics could come from Paris, Rome and South Africa.

Bidding for the 2024 host city begins in 2015. The International Olympic Committee will elect the host city in 2017.
