3rd Annual Northeast Friends Group Convention
Fri, Oct 13, 2017, 6:00 PM – Sun, Oct 15, 2017, 3:00 PM EDT
Please join us for NPCA's 2017 Northeast Friends Convention!
This gathering offers a unique opportunity for Northeast friends groups, local organizations, individuals and National Park Service staff to network and share resources. Attendees at this convention will be encouraged to share lessons learned and organize to collectively address the great challenges facing our national parks. Participants at the conference -- friends group staff, board members, supporters, park staff, heritage area representatives, donors and community members -- will make common connections, learn from each other and discover the power that friends groups can collectively assert in Washington, and at home, as advocates.
This year, the 2017 Friends Convention will be held in Hyde Park, NY, at the Home of Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site.
