The CAMM Board has begun an earlier timetable for conference planning this year. The deadline for session proposals has been moved up to December 2, 2016, so that speakers have plenty of time to get necessary travel approvals after their December 16th notification of acceptance. Please submit sessions with topics of interest to the CAMM community by downloading the online form.
San Francisco Maritime NHP, our conference host, has announced that the conference hotel will be the Argonaut Hotel located on Fisherman’s Wharf within walking distance of all conference activities. The Argonaut is offering a special rate (the normal government rate) of $267 plus tax. This special rate will only be available until they run out of the contracted rooms, or March 27, whichever comes first. Call the hotel at 800-790-1415 to make your reservation and request the Council of American Maritime Museums Annual Conference rate.
There are many other hotels in Fisherman’s Wharf, from basic to luxury, within walking distance of the Park. A hostel is located just west of the Park, also within walking distance.
Parking is very limited so car rentals are discouraged.
The three-day (April 19-21, 2017) registration rate of $195 will cover all sessions, breakfasts, two box lunches, evening reception, and final dinner. The one-day rate is $110. Optional field trips are planned for Saturday, April 22, 2017, and possibly Tuesday, April 18. Registration will start January 2, 2017. Rennie travel grants are available to staff at CAMM member institutions. See our annual conference webpage for the application.
