CMC North Conference

CMC North Conference 64th Annual Conference
The Magic of Mathematics
December 3 - 5, 2021

Pacific Grove, CA 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: September 22, 2021   The CMC North board was informed last week that we can no longer use one of our venues due to Covid issues. We have secured additional meeting space on the Asilomar Conference Grounds.

Due to the reduced number of meeting rooms and the capacity of the meeting rooms available, we are limiting registrations to 850 people. There will be no onsite registration once that limit is reached. 

Pursuant to CA state requirements, all CMC conference attendees need to provide proof of vaccination or 72-hour negative Covid test in order to receive their conference materials. You may upload your proof of vaccination or Covid test result or bring it to the registration area. The upload must included your first and last name in the same picture as your proof. Proof of vaccination can be uploaded by using this link: or emailed to Gretchen Muller, CMC Executive Secretary, at [email protected]. Once the proof of vaccination or the negative covid test is approved, the documents will be deleted.

CMC State Policy is that masks are required to be worn indoors at all CMC conferences.
