Luncheon Dine Around for Graduate Students and Young Professionals
Please join Elizabeth Goetsch and Heather Bailey at our Dine-Around lunch for grad student/early professionals on the Thursday the 11th from 1pm to 3pm, "Working for the Man: Employed by Government Agencies." The lunch session is designed for graduate students and young professionals who have worked with a government agency (either currently or in the past): SHPO, NPS, NFS, FWS, BLM, etc. We will meet in the lobby at 12:45 and head over the the Three Lions Bakery for lunch.
Heather Bailey is finishing her PhD in Public History from Middle Tennessee State and just started a job as a State & National Register Historian for Colorado. Elizabeth Goetsch is completing her MA in History at Middle Tennessee and works as a park ranger for the Stones River National Battlefield. Since Thursday is the full of grad student/new professional topics and activities, we wanted to gather together all those breaking into the public history side of government agency work. See you at the conference!
