The Perfect Government Learning Location

The Hyatt Regency Chesapeake BayThe Government-funded Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Conference Center was built by the State of Maryland to provide a world-class learning environment.
The hotel supports the State of Maryland’s goal of providing economic development to the Cambridge community. Cambridge, Maryland is a readily accessible drive down Route 50, a short 90 minutes from Washington DC.
Cambridge, Maryland’s per diem rate of $120 represents a significant savings to Government –over $100 less than Washington DC’s $224 hotel per diem rate.
Located an hour and a half from Reagan National and Baltimore-Washington International airports, the conference center offers easy access for both commuting and overnight stays.

Exceptional Networking and Teambuilding

FedSMC Attendees NetworkingThe Federal Senior Management Conference provides substantial opportunity to collaborate with peers in government. Expand your network as you join into stimulating dialogue sessions, inspiring keynote discussions, exciting teambuilding activities, and one-of-a-kind networking events, such as the ever-popular Late Night at Michener’s Library – a truly unprecedented backdrop for discussion.
“Late night is arguably the most important part of the conference. For three nights, you have the chance to interact with peers and have real conversations where all pretenses are dropped, and you actually get to discuss the core of management issues and get things accomplished.” – FedSMC 2011 SES Attendee, GSA
Regarded as “the place to be for federal managers” the FedSMC is truly unparalleled in location, content, and delivering innovation, skills, and knowledge vital to the growth and development of federal management.
