We hope you are joining us for the 2017 PAMLA Conference at Chaminade University of Honolulu, starting Friday morning, November 10, and continuing on until Sunday afternoon, November 12.
The entire conference–all of our conference rooms–will be located at Chaminade University, so you shouldn’t get lost.
Chaminade University’s entrance is located at: 3140 Waialae Ave, Honolulu, HI 96816. Registration will be held in the Ching Conference Center in Eiben Hall.
There will be plenty of free parking on the Chaminade campus. Just be sure not to park in any Dean’s, President’s, or other reserved spots including any St. Louis spots.
Do plan out where you need to be by looking at the schedule and our Chaminade University map, and by heading toward where you need to be (especially for your own session) a bit early.

Some Random Bits of Advice
Print your paper out ahead of time (it will be difficult to do so at Chaminade); plan ahead; get there a bit early; attend other people’s sessions if you want others to attend yours; be friendly; keep your sense of humor; try to have fun; and don’t overuse semicolons and imperatives, except when you really want to.
