This is a new format for ALHFAM and the Mid-Atlantic Region – by combining active, hands-on workshops with the regional meeting, we are answering needs expressed in the Skills Assessment Survey. Every ALHFAM Professional Interest Group is represented, from Foodways to Machinery, FARM to HAT, FPI to PIE, HiTS to CPR. The program begins Friday at 1 p.m. and ends after dinner Saturday night. Estimated cost for the program is about $130 (includes Friday dinner, Saturday lunch, and dinner). Full program details in late August!

An organization of people who bring history to life
