Dates: Aug. 23-25, 2022
Pacific Time: 08:00 – 16:00
Welcome to the Advanced CLPM Workshop
Welcome to the annual Advanced Command Language Program Manager (ACLPM) Workshop. The first event was held June 6th, 1994 at the Presidio of Monterey. The workshop was initiated as a means of communicating current advances in the language community to CLPMs and providing a forum for collaboration and CLPM professional development. Over the years, the event has evolved to meet the needs of the community; however, its focus on collaboration and CLPM professional development remains the same. We look forward to meeting all of you personally and continuing our cooperation to help military language professionals remain current on foreign language issues. ACLPM participants must be registered in ATRRS.
How To Register
All attendees must be registered in ATRRS. The Advanced CLPM Workshop can be found under school code 215 (DLIFLC). The course is “00ZZ-A” (Zero Zero Zulu Zulu – Alpha).

Welcome to the beautiful Monterey Peninsula and the home of the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center. As in years past, we requested courtesy room block agreements with various local hotels for this year’s event. However, due to the summer tourist season some hotels were reluctant to commit or would only agree to a very limited number of rooms at the government per diem rate.
Government Lodging (CAC Card required):
IHG – Army Lodging, 466 Cabrillo St., Building 366, Presidio of Monterey; Phone: (831) 645-1199
Navy Lodge – Naval Support Activity, Monterey, 1100 Farragut Rd. (La Mesa Housing Area); Phone: (831) 372-6133
Navy Lodge – Hermann Hall, Naval Postgraduate School, 1 University Circle, Bldg 220, Monterey; Phone: (831) 920-0974
The following hotels confirmed they would have some rooms at the government rate and / or provided limited room block agreements:
Embassy Suites by Hilton Monterey Bay, 1441 Canyon Del Rey Blvd, Seaside; Phone: (831) 393-1115
Hampton Inn, 2401 Del Monte Ave, Monterey; Phone: (831) 373-7100
Holiday Inn Express, 1400 Del Monte Blvd, Seaside; Phone: (831) 394-5335
Some of the other hotels we contacted have not responded to our requests. We encourage you to make your DTS arrangements as soon as possible to secure your accommodation.
Marriott has stated they will not offer government rates due to the tourist season.
We will update this list if we receive additional information from hotels that have agreed to block rooms. All reservations must be guaranteed with a major credit card. The hotels will not hold any reservations unless secured by credit card.

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.
