CAM Annual Conference

CAM 2024 – Launch Point

CAM is planning for 2024! We are excited to share that CAM's 2024 Annual Conference will take place in Long Beach, California from March 10–13, 2024. CAM last convened an annual conference in Long Beach in 2007, and 2024 marks our return to the beautiful Southern California locale. With a community rich in heritage, history, and iconic landmarks, Long Beach offers museum workers a point of gathering from which we'll launch into new ways of working and making change within the field. Stay tuned for more developments in the coming months! Monitor this space for announcements about the Call for Proposals, Advertising & Sponsorship opportunities, Scholarships, Volunteering, and more. 

Online Early Bird Registration is now closed. Online Early Bird Registration was open from October 25 to January 3. Online Regular Rate pricing will be open from January 4 to February 25. All registration will close from February 25 until March 10. Onsite registration may be available but is not guaranteed.

The California Association of Museums is excited to continue offering in-person programming for 2024. We will not be requiring proof of COVID vaccination/s, but highly encourage vaccination and boosters. For the health and safety of our colleagues, masks are also encouraged (but not required). Capacity and spaces will be thoughtfully considered in the planning of this event, and we encourage you to explore the local Long Beach outdoor areas, harbor breezes, and nearby spaces and sights for your lunches and breaks when possible.

CAM is committed to providing a respectful conference experience that is safe, inclusive, and free of harassment. A Code of Conduct sets expectations for all CAM program participants, provides steps to report incidents, and lists possible consequences for would-be violators. CAM does not tolerate harassment or discrimination in any form.
