CSAA's neighbors to the north at the Quinte Educational Museum and Archives (QEMA) will host the SLATE in the County 2012 Conference in Ameliasburgh, Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada, April 15-16, 2012. You are invited to attend!
QEMA is gratified to report that they have already received numerous enquiries related to this year's SLATE Conference. Twenty Friends of SLATE have already indicated their intent to attend this yearly event, and three people have submitted their registration form though the QEMA site and through PayPal.
All updated information has been posted at SLATE in the COUNTY and may be accessed through this link. The site is interactive and user friendly.
The Conference will begin with a “Meet & Greet” reception at the Ameliasburgh Town Hall on April 15th, followed by a one day conference on the 16th using the facilities of the Ameliasburgh Town Hall, The Ameliasburgh Historical Museum and Pioneer Village & QEMA’s Victoria Schoolhouse.
Planners are hopeful that conference participants will plan to spend the weekend or even a week in historic Prince Edward County and the Quinte area. Links to local County information including the City of Belleville are provided for reference on the website. In addition, a YouTube slide presentation has been included.
We look forward with anticipation to your visit with us.
