CONFERENCES: Education & Engagement
HeritageRail sponsors two conferences annually, one in the Fall, at which the Annual Meeting of the membership takes place, and one in the Spring. Not only do both conferences offer educational programs and takeaways that attendees can apply at their own organizations, but also the opportunity to personally meet with suppliers and vendors one-on-one and view their products.
PLAN AHEAD! HeritageRail conferences are held in a variety of interesting cities across the United States and Canada with great sightseeing and numerous regional activities (many members make the conferences an extended vacation). To help offset the costs of attending the Fall conference, HeritageRail offers scholarships and stipends to qualifed member applicants. For learning opportunities, a friendly atmosphere, and good conversation with others who love the rails, the HeritageRail conferences are can't miss events! Upcoming conferences include:
