We received many great proposals for the 2020 Heritage Region Communications Conference.  If you submitted, Thank You! The time and effort you invested are greatly appreciated, along with your contributions to the professional development of our conference attendees.

With an abundance of caution, this year’s Heritage Region conference (Nov. 8-10) in Boston is postponed. The conference committee is working closely with the hotel to secure new dates in the Fall of 2021. The extra time will ensure a safe experience and travel for conference attendees and speakers, plus a whole year to make the Heritage Region Conference a huge success.

In planning for next year’s conference, there are four options for you regarding your speaker submissions:

  1. Approve your rollover. If you DO NOT respond, your 2020 proposal(s) will be evaluated for speaking at the 2021 Conference. You don’t need to submit a new proposal(s) for 2021.
  2. Make minor changes/updates to your 2020 proposal(s) and resubmit your revised proposal by the 2021 Call for Speakers deadline.*
  3. Withdraw your 2020 proposal(s) from consideration for the 2021 Conference. You must notify both Pat Frey and me of this decision by the 2021 Call for Speakers deadline.* Email us at: jelovejoyabc.iabc@gmail.com and pafrey2@gmail.com.
  4. Submit new proposals for the 2021 Conference by the 2021 Call for Speakers deadline*.

*The 2021 Call for Speakers will be issued in early January 2021.
