Conference Location and Accommodations
All sessions and meals will be held at The Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay in Cambridge, Maryland. The Four-Diamond Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay is located on the Eastern Shore - a fairly wide peninsula between the Chesapeake Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, consisting of hundreds of miles of shoreline, farmland, forests, modest cities and small historic towns.
The resort is situated on 400 acres on the Choptank River, in Cambridge, Maryland, in close proximity to St. Michaels, Oxford, the Naval Academy, and historic Annapolis. The county seat of Dorchester County, Cambridge was laid out as a town in 1684 on land that was once part of the Choptank Indian Reservation. It is one of the oldest towns in Maryland, and has been called the Queen City on the Eastern Shore. The city has a rich fishing heritage, reflected in the national reputation for high quality seafood, and working fishing boats are still docked along the waterfront.
