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 10–14, 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. 

Conference registration will be announced at a later date. CAM will have an online Early Bird pricing registration period, an online Regular Rate pricing registration period, and an onsite Regular Rate registration period.

The Preliminary Conference Program will become available later in 2023. The Call for Proposals window has now closed. If you have questions about the program or call for proposals process, please contact Rochelle Kuan Hoffman, Program Manager.

Lodging and transportation for the 2024 conference will be announced at a later date.

Scholarship opportunities for CAM 2024 will be announced at a later date.

Advertising opportunities for CAM 2024 are available. Explore the Business Prospectus.

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.
