Rich with history of the ancient coastal Miwoks and the 1912 American Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company, the historical significance of the property was recognized with the classification of the facility as a State Historic Park in 1991.

We have a great package for this year’s conference! Conference Registration includes a one-year membership to the ISCSC for new and any renewing members! All lodging and meals for the conference are provided on-site. There are 4 easy steps to successfully register for the conference. First, please read this entire briefing.
1). Each attendee is to make their own Conference Registration ($275), and lodging arrangements directly with the ISCSC before the deadline of April 25, 2017 by printing out and completing the Conference Registration Form 2017 on the ISCSC website. Lodging cost includes all meals, occupancy tax AND sales tax for all 3 nights. Rates are the equivalent of: $245 Single; $165 Double or $135 Triple per person, per day. Meals begin with welcome reception and dinner on the arrival date and end with lunch on departure date. Lodging/meal package reservations will be for the entire 3 days.
2). After filling out the two-page registration form, proceed to the Conference Registration Payment link. You will find the link below this briefing. Select the same option you chose when filling out the Conference Registration Form (single, double or triple occupancy). This process is part of our conference package and ensures the agreed upon rates. Attempting to make individual reservations through the Marconi Conference Center, even if available, will result in much higher costs to participants and is not part of our conference package and activities. The online payment link allows you to either pay with a PayPal account or with a credit card. ISCSC will not be accepting checks by mail.
3). After your online payment is completed, print out a copy of your receipt and mail it together with your Conference Registration Form 2017 to Peter Hecht, Executive Director, ISCSC. 5636 Connecticut Avenue, N.W. Suite 42559, Washington D.C. 20015-9998.
4). Plan your travel and transportation arrangements and join your fellow attendees for this exciting conference.
