Regional Events

Regional Conference

The League typically hosts a regional conference each Spring in different locations across the United States. Occasionally, we also offer a second Regional in the Fall. 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.
