WWI Centennial Planning Workshop (Friday, February 3)

What are you doing for April and the launch of the centennial?

April 6, 2017, marks the 100th anniversary of the United States officially entering the Great War. Our state-wide planning conference will help you take "the next step" in preparing for the launch of America's WWI centennial commemoration. Join us for a day of planning and coordination to help you develop activities for your community or organization, find key partners, and identify strategies for promoting commemoration events. Sessions will include subject-matter experts, round-table discussions, and networking opportunities.


The conference is open to all interested individuals and will take place on February 3 at the Texas Military Forces Museum at Camp Mabry in Austin. Please RSVP by Monday, January 30. Our meeting space has a maximum capacity, so RSVPs will be accepted until we reach that limit.
