     Pre-Conference Athenian Leadership Dialogue: Nothing Like It in the World: The Men Who Built the Transcontinental Railroad 1863-69

    Facilitated by Margy Greer and Susan Ortiz

    Nothing Like It in the World gives the account of an unprecedented feat of engineering, vision, and courage. It is the story of the men who built the transcontinental railroad—the investors who risked their businesses and money; the enlightened politicians who understood its importance; the engineers and surveyors who risked, and sometimes lost, their lives; and the Irish and Chinese immigrants, the defeated Confederate soldiers, and the other laborers who did the backbreaking and dangerous work on the tracks.

    The U.S. government pitted two companies—the Union Pacific and the Central Pacific Railroads—against each other in a race for funding, encouraging speed over caution. Locomotives, rails, and spikes were shipped from the East through Panama or around South America to the West or lugged across the country to the Plains. In Ambrose's hands, this enterprise, with its huge expenditure of brainpower, muscle, and sweat, comes vibrantly to life.

    All Aboard!  Full Steam Ahead!

    Register today for the 2019 CMCA Annual Conference!  

    This years conference will take place October 16-18, 2019 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Durango.  More information on the sessions will  be posted on the 2019 Annual Conference page.

    Special Notes:

    • We are chartering a bus from the front range to Durango!  The bus will pick up from locations in Fort Collins, Denver, Colorado Springs, and Pueblo. The cost is only $150 per person - which is less than mileage, and a WHOLE LOT MORE FUN!!  We need at least 25 riders. Travel to Durango on Monday, and back to the front range after the conference on Friday.  If we are not able to get this minimum, we will cancel it and refund your fee.
    •  Don't miss the special event on Wednesday, which will include a ride on the historic Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad and a dinner in the scenic Animas Valley. After boarding the train, members will ride through town, across the river, and up the valley to the River Bend Ranch to enjoy a catered dinner with views of the striking red cliffs surrounding the valley. After dinner, the train will take us back through town to the depot, where you can explore the museum and train yard before walking back to the hotel.  Guest are welcome, and you can purchase extra guest tickets during registration.

    CMCA has reserved a block of rooms at the DoubleTree for the rate of $105 (plus taxes and fees) per night.  Reservations can be made online here.
