This year’s con­fer­ence, «Mis­sion & Cre­ativ­ity: Mak­ing Your Or­ga­ni­za­tion Thrive,» will fo­cus on uti­liz­ing an or­ga­ni­za­tion’s mis­sion as a guide to new un­der­stand­ing and con­nect­ing to con­quer chal­lenges and reap re­wards with lit­tle or no money.

Fol­low­ing the key­note ad­dress, at­ten­dees will choose from seven ed­u­ca­tional work­shops and tours, in­clud­ing: What to do about Mold on Tex­tile and Pa­per; Be­hind the Scenes at Brat­tle­boro Mu­seum and Art Cen­ter; Cul­tural Tourism: Path­ways to Eco­nomic Growth; Dig­i­tal His­tory: Us­ing Tech­nol­ogy to En­gage Your Com­mu­nity; and a Walk­ing Tour of Brat­tle­boro.

«This year the day­long con­fer­ence will be held in the south­ern part of the state with achieve­ment awards and work­shops rel­e­vant to the needs of the lo­cal his­tory com­mu­nity,» said Mark Hud­son, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the Ver­mont His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety. «The meet­ing pro­vides the op­por­tu­nity to net­work and share con­cerns, suc­cesses, and is­sues with his­tory-loving col­leagues.»
