DeppertCLPMWelcome to the Advanced CLPM Workshop

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Annual Command Language Program Managers’ Workshop. The first event was held June 6th, 1994 at the Presidio of Monterey. The workshop was initiated as a means of communicating current trends to CLPMs and providing a forum for collaboration and CLPM professional development. Over the years the event has changed; however, its focus of collaboration and CLPM professional development remains the same. I look forward to meeting all of you personally and hearing from you what DLI can do to help you in the important work you do for military language professionals.

When booking online at the IHG Hotel, please select official travel and TDY on the left side of the screen.If you are flying into Monterey, personnel staying at the IHG Hotel can be picked up from the Monterey Airport with a Hotel Shuttle at no extra cost.


If you are flying, you may use the San Jose International Airport  or the Monterey Peninsula Airport. San Jose is located 71 miles north of Monterey. We recommend that you take Highway 101 southbound instead of Highway 17.  Monterey airport closes at approximately midnight. If you chose to drive please note that Pvt. Bolio Road entrance is the only visitor gate.

Driving from the North

Use Highway 101 South to the Monterey Peninsula exit near Prunedale (Highway 156 West). This five-mile road leads to Highway 1 South.

At the mouth of the Monterey Bay, Highway 1 South travels on the outskirts of Marina and Seaside, as well as the former Fort Ord, now called the Ord Military Community (OMC).

Continue along Highway 1 South until just south of the Seaside city limits; then take the Del Monte exit. Follow Del Monte until you approach the Fisherman’s Wharf intersection.

At this point there are two choices to get to the installation:

  • Move to the left lane at the Fisherman’s Wharf intersection. Follow straight ahead, passing the Portola Plaza Hotel of Monterey (on your right). At Pacific Street turn left. Go one block, turn right and go up Franklin Street. At the crest of the hill you’ll be entering the Presidio of Monterey at the Franklin Street Gate.
  • Move to the right lane at the Fisherman’s Wharf intersection and follow the signs to Cannery Row. Go through the tunnel and then get into the right lane. Veer right onto Foam Street. Take the first left turn. Then take an immediate left again onto Lighthouse Avenue (because you can’t make a left from Lighthouse onto Pvt. Bolio road). Turn right onto Pvt. Bolio Road. It will take you onto the Presidio via Pvt. Bolio Road.

Driving from the South

Use Highway 101 to Salinas. Follow Highway 68 signs to Monterey Peninsula/Highway 1 to the Pacific Grove City/17-Mile Drive turnoff (Highway 68). Turn right. Follow Highway 68 to Prescott Avenue. Turn right on Prescott Avenue.

At the first traffic light, turn right on Taylor Street. Within one block’s distance you’ll enter the Presidio through the Taylor Street Gate.
