The American Battlefield Protection Program (ABPP) is requesting volunteers to assist us at the 7th National Conference on Battlefield Preservation from April 19-25, 2004 at the Sheraton Nashville Downtown in Nashville, Tennessee. Volunteer duties will include manning an information/check-in desk, being available to answer questions about the area, and functioning as emergency “runners” for presenters. Volunteers will receive free access to all presentations and the exhibit/book room. Participation in other events, such as roundtable luncheons and tours are available for an extra fee. The ABPP is asking volunteers to donate a minimum of 8 hours, though more time is certainly appreciated.
For more information about volunteering at the conference, please see the contact below. For more information about the conference, including agendas, abstracts, and prices for tours, luncheons, etc., please visit the American Battlefield Protection Program website.
The 7th National Conference on Battlefield Preservation will include sessions directed by the American Battlefield Protection Program, the Second International Workshop on Earthworks and Battlefield Terrain, and Fields of Conflict III: Recent Perspectives on Battlefield Archaeology. In addition, the ABPP conference is being coordinated with the Civil War Preservation Trust Conference, which will take place in Nashville during the same week. With all of these organizations presenting together during the same period of time, we hope to bring together cultural resource professionals and battlefield advocates to discuss, exchange, and present ideas which lead to the long-term preservation and protection of our nation’s historic battlefields, as well as battlefields around the world. More than 250 international archeologists, historians, preservation planners, and battlefield friends are expected to attend.
