There is also an updated program available at https://maritimemuseums.files.wordpress.com/2013/07/program-as-of-march-112.pdf
Steve White, president of Mystic Seaport, invites CAMM conference attendees to the screening of Unfurling the World: The Voyages of Irving and Electa Johnson on Sunday, April 12th, at the conference hotel.

As you know the Los Angeles Maritime Museum will be hosting CAMM’s 2015 annual meeting on April 13-14. They are putting together a great mix of educational and social programs set against the backdrop of the busy port of Los Angeles.
The CAMM board is currently considering two offers to host CAMM’s annual meeting in 2016 and 2017. Before making the final decision, they would like to provide an opportunity for other members to express their interest in hosting. Host’s responsibilities include providing a venue that’s within or nearby their museum; making local arrangements for lodging, meals, boat cruise, and optional field trips; establishing the budget; creating the schedule; and providing support for the program sessions.
Since CAMM attempts to hold its meetings in different parts of the country, the Board would welcome offers from member institutions along the Gulf Coast.
If you are interested in hosting a conference please contact Dave Pearson at email@example.com or any CAMM Board Member to express your interest before December 19th.
