2017 California Missions Conference

The three-day event, which begins on Friday and wraps on Sunday, will return to Mission Santa Inés for the first time since 1999.

The conference will begin Friday morning, when, for the first time, CMF will host two additional and Missions related events as part of the California Missions Conference: the inaugural Institute for the Study of Presidios and the 19th Annual California Missions Directors and Curators Conference. Formerly hosted by the Old Mission Santa Barbara, the Directors and Curators Conference has served employees and volunteers of the missions, while the 1st Institute for the Study of Presidios will introduce several new topics to the conference weekend of presentations.

Mission Santa Inés will be an ideal backdrop for both events. More information can be found below.

Following lunch, all Conference attendees are invited to enjoy afternoon in-depth tours of the Mission Santa Inés complex, as well as the adjacent Santa Inés Mission Grist Mills.

Friday evening, there will be a hosted reception for attendees, followed by an evening program in the mission church and the annual business and general membership meeting.

Saturday, the Conference will feature a full day of paper presentations, with lunch served at the mission. That Saturday evening, the Annual Conference Awards Banquet will honor those who have made significant contributions to the study, preservation, and interpretation of the California Missions and related historic sites and to furthering the mission of the California Missions Foundation.

Sunday, the Conference wraps up with an optional tour of Mission La Purísima.

Sheila Benedict, long-time archivist at Mission Santa Inés, has been instrumental in local conference arrangements.
