A popular feature of each conference is the "Maxilliped Lecture" given by the outgoing president, who then passes on the pectoral pendant, a metal maxilliped on a chain, to the incoming president.

Dinner on the battleship USS IOWA
The USS IOWA is the lead ship of her class of battleship in the United States Navy. Built in 1940, she is designated as the "World's Greatest Naval Ship" due to her big guns, heavy armor, fast speed, and longevity. During her more than 50 years in service, she escorted our nation’s Commander in Chief on many occasions. No other battleship in our nation’s history has been host to more U.S. Presidents. In 2012, the USS IOWA was permanently moved to the Port of Los Angeles where she was opened to the public as the USS IOWA Museum.
