We are excited to welcome Connecticut's history and museum community back to our home base at CCSU in New Britain this year. We'll be in a larger, more spacious building, with an airy atrium for our exhibitor hall, and plenty of space for sessions, networking, breakouts, and more—not to mention convenient free parking in an adjacent garage.

Registrants will be asked to choose from the following boxed lunch choices as part of their registration:

Advance registration closes May 31. Attendees may register at the door the day of the conference at a higher rate, but may not receive a lunch.

Optional Field Trips

For a small additional charge, conference attendees may also choose to attend one of two optional fields trips to local museums during the afternoon (2:00–3:00 pm): the New Britain Industrial Museum and the New Britain Museum of American Art. Field trip registration is on a first come, first served basis, and must be completed separately from conference registration.
