|Welcome to the Annual Meetings!|
Baltimore's Inner Harbor is the site of our 2013 Annual Meetings. Situated in the heart of the eastern seaboard, it is one of the most photographed and visited areas of the city. It has been one of the major seaports in the United States since the 1700s and started blossoming into the cultural center of Baltimore in the 1970s. Locals and visitors alike enjoy Baltimore's Inner Harbor and the surrounding neighborhoods that offer a variety of fine dining, cultural experiences, and exciting nightlife. Come dine on fresh crabs, visit the Aquarium, and take a moment to listen to live jazz at Lexington Market.
Registration and Housing is now open!
