2019 District 1 Conference

Nov. 11 - 13, 2019
Providence, Rhode Island


Small but Mighty

No state epitomizes District 1’s 2019 "Small but Mighty" conference theme better than our country’s smallest state.

Join your District 1 colleagues this fall in Providence, Rhode Island, the “Creative Capital” that does small in a big way. Stoke your creative juices and find ways to be resourceful, innovative and inventive to produce mighty work at your college.

This year’s conference will be held at the Graduate Providence hotel (formerly the landmark and historic Biltmore Hotel). The Graduate opened this past spring and was recently referred to by the Boston Globe as "the chicest, hippest and most vibrant hotel in Providence." During your stay, enjoy the city’s vibrant arts and cultural venues, shops and boutiques, cozy cafés and a restaurant scene that frequently earns its way onto the ‘best foodie’ lists.

See you in Providence!
