Conferences

Mark your calendars now for our annual conference and general meeting in Canada’s vibrant, bilingual capital. Ottawa — home to the nation’s Parliament and many historic and cultural attractions — is located on the Ontario-Quebec border, at the junction of the Ottawa, Rideau, and Gatineau Rivers. Considered one of the world’s most beautiful capitals, Ottawa is about a four-hour drive from Toronto and a two-hour drive from Montreal.

Westin Hotel, Pasadena, California

The word “craft” is defined as something made with great care and ingenuity. To craft something —
an index, for example — requires both artistry and proficiency, a seamless melding of design and
construction. The 2005 conference of the American Society of Indexers offers something to indexers
at all levels of their craft. And it is especially appropriate that the art and craft of indexing be celebrated
in Pasadena, a centre of the American Arts and Crafts Movement, home of the historic Gamble House.
Attendees are offered a chance to spend a day touring the nearby Getty Museum.
