PAMLA Activities and Deadlines

PAMLA Conference Accommodations Information

Our 2015 PAMLA Conference will be held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, November 6-8, 2015, at two lovely three-star hotels right in downtown Portland:

  • The Hilton Portland & Executive Tower
  • The Portland Marriott City Center

Sessions will be located in these two hotels, which are approximately a five minute walk apart. We have therefore arranged for extremely reasonable PAMLA room rates at both hotels.
