Please join us for our 51st edition. We are honored this year to feature Hunter R. Rawlings III as our keynote speaker. President Emeritus Rawlings is a distinguished educator and administrator, having served three separate terms as president of Cornell University, most recently in 2017. He has held the post of president of the Association of American Universities, the president of the University of Iowa, and the chairman of the classics department at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
Our venue this year is the Kimpton Hotel Palomar, located just a few blocks from the Cornell In Washington program house between DuPont Circle and Georgetown. The Palomar is one of 41 portfolio hotels owned by LaSalle Hotel Properties, a leading multi-operator real estate investment trust based in Bethesda, MD. LaSalle itself currently counts over a dozen Cornellians at the company, including the CEO, CFO and other senior executives. Thank you, Hotel School!
The Kimpton Hotel Palomar is located at 2121 P Street NW. Look for Cornell banners near the separate door just to the left of the main lobby, (or the west, toward Georgetown.) Use the DuPont Circle Metro stop on the Red Line. Valet parking will be available, and street parking opens up after 6:30pm in DC. Registration and cash-bar will be open at 6:30, with a three course dinner to follow. A brief business meeting will be held, including CCW President Terry Horner's annual report, the presentation of the Bondareff and Best Program awards, and the election of next year's Board Members.
