The “Early Bird Discount” for registration for the upcoming ICMM Conference has been extended until August 31. It appears that the U.S. has two representatives on the program. Stuart Frank, New Bedford Whaling Museum will be speaking at the “Shared HIstory” session and James Delgado, US Maritime Heritage Programme (NOAA) will be part of “Connecting the Past and Present: Maritime Archaeology.”
CAMM President Dave Pearson and Vice-President Greg Gorga will also be attending. We look forward to their report!
Richard O’Farrell, director of the Door County Maritime Museum, is seeking information from the CAMM membership. He writes “the Door County Maritime Museum is currently preparing to begin a capital campaign for an eleven-story tower as an addition to our Sturgeon Bay facility. Part of the fundraising will involve large donors and naming right opportunities. We do not have a naming rights policy. Do any of the other CAMM members have a policy that they would be willing to share with us?”
