Williamsburg was founded as the capital of the Virginia Colony in 1699. The original capital, Jamestown was the first permanent English-speaking settlement in the New World, founded in 1607. Colonial leaders petitioned the Virginia Assembly to relocate the capital from Jamestown to Middle Plantation, five miles inland between the James and the York Rivers. The new city was renamed Williamsburg in honor of England's reigning monarch, King William III. Williamsburg celebrated its 300th Anniversary in 1999.
It seems highly appropriate that our conference will be held in a place renowned as a center of learning.
Today, the Greater Williamsburg area is known internationally as the premier center for the preservation and interpretation of American colonial history. It is home to Colonial Williamsburg, the Jamestown Settlement, and the Yorktown Battlefield, as well as the second oldest academic institution in the US: The College of William & Mary.
Entertainment includes Busch Gardens, award-winning golf courses, wineries and breweries, and numerous dining establishments.
We enthusiastically welcome you to Williamsburg April 15 – 18, 2015 for our 36th Annual Meeting!

We have many wonderful things planned for our conference attendees this year.
