Regional Conferences

The League typically hosts two regional conferences each year, one in the spring and one in the fall, in different locations across the United States. Regional conferences provide intensive, intimate professional development and networking experiences, and the condensed format fits into participants' busy schedules. Members of the League's national Board of Directors act as the conference presenters and share practical and pertinent insights based on their experiences as leaders in the historic theatre field.

Typical conference topics include: The Historic Theatre Advantage; Making the Case for Investment; Raising Capital Campaign Money; Film Presentation 101: Programming, Promotion and Projection; Writing Contracts, Operations Basics; Maximizing Concession Profits; Marketing Q&A; Responsibilities of Nonprofit Boards; Historic Theatre Renovation 101; Reducing Risk and Other Insurance Issues.


Spring Regional Conference

Making the Case for Historic Theatres

The League will not offer a Regional Conference in Spring 2022 as was tentatively planned. Instead, the LHAT Staff and Board will be focusing all of its efforts on making the in-person National Conference in Cleveland as valuable and fun as possible! We'll resume offering our Regional Conferences in Spring 2023.
