23rd Legacies History Conference (Virtual)

23rd Annual Legacies
Dallas History Conference

The annual conference will be virtual again this year!

UPDATE AS OF JANUARY 14, 2022: Patron registration is $100 and normally includes an invitation to a special in-person event prior to the conference. Unfortunately, omicron is forcing us to pivot away from gathering together, but the Legacies Steering Committee is working to put together something special for our Patrons that will be delivered the week of the conference. More details will be communicated to Patron ticket holders soon.
