Presentation/Networking Reception
Sunday, May 1st
5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Locust Grove Estate
2263 South Road, Poughkeepsie

How do we reach emerging audiences in our local and regional communities? What sorts of new programs are in the works with our partner organizations and historic sites? What problems do we face individually that affect our history community as a whole? What can we learn by sharing perspectives and insights?
Join us for a presentation by Cordell Reaves, Historic Interpretation and Preservation Analyst at the New York State Park Service, on his "Conversations with Colleagues" program.  Mr. Reaves will discuss the inspiration for the program, its structure, and the variety of insights and partnerships it has fostered over the past few years. This program offers an outstanding model for increasing collaboration in our own regional history community.

Please join us after the presentation to mingle with your colleagues in the field for conversation, wine and light hors d'oeuvres. 

The presentation and reception are free, but space is limited and advance registration is required.

*Light hors d'oeuvres generously sponsored by the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area. 
Wine generously sponsored by the Museum Association of New York.
