This year’s theme surrounds patron safety in our cultural resource institutions. We’ll be hearing from a number of public safety instructors and professionals on what lengths we can take to create greater safety and security policies.

Topics will include active shooter training, hostage negotiation, first aid, implementation of security policies and plans, and much more! This is a conference you won’t want to miss!
