January News

Did you know that we are more than a weekend conference every February in Midcoast Maine? The Camden Conference community plays an active and important role in the world year-round. Here's what we've been up to:


I want to express my deep gratitude for your financial support over the past year.  Without the generous support of members and sponsors, we simply could not organize the Camden Conference.
And I wish for you and your family a peaceful, prosperous 2019, a year when we can all participate as citizens in our democracy, to help make a better nation and a more peaceful, just world.

In the Classroom

The Maine 2019 Teacher of the Year, Joseph Hennessey of the Piscataquis Community High School, was honored at a gala on November 17, 2018. The Camden Conference is proud to name him as one of the educators involved in our Camden Conference in the Classroom program. The photo to the right shows Hennessey (center) at the gala with current and former CCC educators, from left, Sarah Shmitt (Deering High School), Erin Towns (Edward Little High School), Emily Gribben (formerly Maine Academy of Natural Sciences), and Shana Goodall (Orono High School). 


In The World

No fewer than five speakers from past and upcoming Camden Conferences participated in a major study on “Chinese Influence & American Interests: Promoting Constructive Vigilance,” issued by the Hoover Institution, the Asia Society and the Annenberg Retreat at Sunnylands in late November. John Pomfret, a speaker at the last Camden Conference on China, in 2006, introduced that report in the Washington Post the day before its publication, terming it “the most comprehensive study of China’s influence operations in the United States to date.” Pomfret was a long-time correspondent for the Post, in China and elsewhere, before moving back to China to work on his 2016 book The Beautiful Country and the Middle Kingdom.
