You’re inscribed, great! Now what?

Please mark your calendars for a free-wheeling discussion about what World Heritage inscription means for the communities where the Hopewell Ceremonial Earthworks sites are located. Joining our own Chief Historic Sites Officer, Jennifer Aultman, in conversation will be Brent Lane, from Ohio University’s Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Service. Lane’s research into the economic impact of World Heritage designation has been foundational to understanding its reach, across communities and the state. Q&A to follow conversation.

Light appetizers, beer and wine will be available. Free to members, but advance registration is required. You can also join us via a live webinar.
