What is a Dinner Meet-up?

Dinner Meet-up are a new feature at CAMFT’s Annual Conference. It is an informal dinner at local restaurants that provide an opportunity for networking, stimulating conversation, and peer learning.

When and where will the Dinner Meet-up take place?

Dinner Meet-up will take place on Wednesday, April 25 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. and Friday, April 27 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at restaurants in the nearby area. Click here to view nearby restaurants.. Dinner Meet-up participants will meet in the hotel lobby near the CAMFT Dinner Meet-up sign 10 minutes prior to the set start time. The coordinator will call your group’s names, and send you off to make your way to the selected restaurant.

How will conference participants learn about and sign-up for dinners?

Dinner Meet-ups will be publicized in CAMFT’s Annual Conference materials, e-mails, as well as on the Conference website. Participants will sign up at the hotel. Sign-up sheets will be available at the conference registration desk. Participants will be able to see which dinners still have space available and sign-up on the spot. If you know other conference attendees who would be interested in participating, please feel free to spread the word.

How many participants should I expect?

To facilitate conversation, we suggest having between four and six guests in your group. On-site sign-up sheets will allow a maximum of six slots.

Who pays for what?

Dinners will be individually paid. At individually paid dinners, attendees will pay for their own meal. So that everyone knows what to expect, CAMFT will provide the list of restaurants with links to their menus on located under the “Attendee” tab.

What is CAMFT responsible for?

CAMFT will be responsible for:

  • selecting the restaurants within walking distance to the hotel
  • making a dinner reservation for each group 
  • coordinating the meet-up in the hotel lobby (look for CAMFT’s Coordinator near the CAMFT Dinner Meet-up sign)
