Receptions and Banquet

Welcome Reception

There will be a Welcome Reception Sunday evening, July 1, 2012, in the Cherry Blossom Ballroom and Lobby, overlooking the Potomac River and National Harbor.  Please join us for some refreshments with fellow conference attendees from 18:00 - 20:00.

Cruise Ship National Harbor at sunset

The conference banquet will be a dinner cruise, Tuesday 3 July 2012, on the Potomac River aboard the Odyssey cruise ship.  Boarding time will be 18:30 at National Harbor, a short walk from Gaylord National Resort.  Dinner cruise will be from 19:00 – 22:00, returning to National Harbor after cruising up the Potomac River towards the national monuments.  Due to the banquet (July 3) being on a boat vessel, regrettably CPEM will have to limit this event to adults 18 years of age and older. We will not allow children at this year’s Banquet Event on July 3rd. We apologize for this inconvenience.
