This year’s conference, in partnership with the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience, is sure to be informative, enlightening, and inspiring. The theme? Turning Points: Ordinary People, Extraordinary Change.
Fifty years after hundreds of young people stood solid for freedom. Fifty years after King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail” articulated principles of nonviolence. Fifty years later we ask: If history is the example, the provocateur, and the context – how do we best use it today?
Feeling inspired? I sure am! To view the preliminary conference program’s listing of sessions, speakers, and tours, click here.
I’ll be there! And I will be presenting again (just once this year, four sessions wore me out last year). Not only can you catch me presenting on “Social Media Madness,” I’ll also be mixing and mingling at the Developing Leaders @ Seminar for Historical Administration (SHA) Reception. Have questions about SHA? On the fence? Interested but hesitant? Find me and let’s chat.
Will this be your first time attending? Do you have questions?
If you’ve been to the annual meeting before, what advice would you offer to first time attendees? Want to share a plug for your session? This post is providing comment opportunities for everyone!
I hope to see you in Birmingham!
