WMS Meetings Info

Member and non-member information

Non-members always welcome!




NEW THIS YEAR!: Each of the presentations held at the Library of Congress will be augmented by special display of rare maps and atlases from the collections of the Geography and Map Division relevant to the presentation or current events.  The maps will be available for viewing prior to and after the presentation.

Program sessions will be held in the Geography and Map Division Research Center, B level, Library of Congress, Madison Building, 101 Independence Avenue, S.E., Washington, D.C. Please allow adequate time to pass through the security checkpoint at the Library's Independence Avenue entrance in time to be seated for the start of the meeting. The Library is one block from METRO's Capital South Station (Blue, Orange  or Silver Lines).

Ed Redmond is President of the WMS ( 202-707-8548 or ered@loc.gov ) and Eliane Dotson (Eliane@oldworldauctions.com) is VP and Programs chair.  Ed and Eliane welcome suggestions for future programs and speakers.

Weather:  The WMS follows the closing decisions of the Federal Government. If the Federal Government is closed, our meeting will be canceled. In the event bad weather develops later in the day, we may still be forced to cancel. We will attempt to send out a blast e-mail in that case. Please check your email account for a WMS notice before coming to a meeting when bad weather is predicted.
