We’ve had an overwhelming response to the event, which will take place at Blithewold Mansion, Gardens, & Arboretum in Bristol, RI on May 13th. We’ve received registrations from docents, guides, and educators from 31 different organizations–21 in Rhode Island, 6 in Massachusetts, and 4 in Connecticut.
We are no longer accepting registrations; any checks that have been sent in will be returned. Everyone who registered online by March 23, or whose check was received on or before that date, will be part of the symposium.
Everyone who successfully registered should have received an email or snail mail acknowledgement of her/his registration. If you have any questions about the status of your registration, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We do plan to post PowerPoint presentations, speakers’ notes, handouts, etc. on this site, so please check back later on in the summer summer.
It is our hope that the Docent Symposium will return to an every-other-year schedule, after its five-year hiatus. It will also be our recommendation to engage a larger venue for the anticipated 2015 symposium, so that we don’t have to turn anyone away.
Thanks for your interest and support!
