Sustaining and growing CWRTs is the focus of the CWRT Congress. Last year, we held a very successful symposium hosted by the Bull Run CWRT in Centreville, VA. (To read what attendees had to say, click this link: http://www.pscwrt.org/activities/CWRT-congress/2017-congress.html
This year, the congress will be held in Harrisburg, PA hosted by the National Civil War Museum with assistance from the Harrisburg CWRT. The agenda this year is much expanded to include a reception on Friday, August 17 including a behind the scenes tour of the museum and a presentation by Chris Mackowski on That Furious Struggle: Chancellorsville and the High Tide of the Confederacy.
On Saturday, the congress begins with “takeaways” including enhanced fundraising and speaker recruitment, no cost marketing, preservation and CWRT assistance and social media as the lynchpin to 21st century marketing. Following the congress, there will be a book signing with eleven Civil War historians and authors, a networking opportunity and dinner at the museum.
On Sunday, Wayne Motts, CEO of the museum and licensed battlefield guide, will be conducting a tour of the Gettysburg battlefield.
