The Association of Personal Historians has been holding annual conferences for years. These yearly get-togethers have always offered great opportunities for networking and learning, consistently sending attendees home excited and energized and ready to apply what they’ve learned to their personal history businesses. This year, however, there will be no conference! In its place, will be something even better: A rebranded and reimagined event called The Life Story Symposium, set for September 24–27 in St. Paul, Minnesota. The symposium planning committee listened to member feedback from previous conferences, threw out what wasn’t working, and added some exciting new features, all centered around the symposium theme of “Connect-Learn-Prosper.” In this episode, podcast host Steve Pender speaks with Conference Director Mary Beth Lagerborg and Conference Program Chair Lori Nelson-Reid. They tell us what the symposium is all about and describe the value it will deliver to APH members.
The symposium and the hotel are expected to sell out, so be sure to register for the symposium and book your hotel room early. Visit the symposium pages on the APH website for up-to-date information and to register.
