What the resources are and how they can come together in light of a Calumet Heritage Area -- reintroduced to the region at last year's conference and this spring's Calumet Summit -- will be the subject of this conference's presentations, panels and  on-site explorations.

Lunch, afternoon tours and one year's membership in the
Calumet Heritage Partnership.
