Early today I came across the latest information about this year’s Midwestern Roots Conference. The conference, put on by the Indiana Historical Society (IHS) will be held July 20-21, 2012 in Indianapolis. I’ve had conflicts in previous years, but this year, I finally get to go!
Bonus: If you register before March 18, the registration fee is only $99 (IHS member or not). After the 18th, prices will revert to $150 (non-member) and $125 (IHS member). The full conference registration fee includes both Friday and Saturday lunches (the banquet dinner on Friday is a separate cost).
They have a great lineup of speakers, including J. Mark Lowe, D. Joshua Taylor, Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak, Dick Eastman, Juliana Smith, and Curt Witcher. There are also several pre-conference activities available on Thursday, July 19.
