Presidential Sites Summit

Presidential Sites Summit 2021

After closely monitoring the regulations and recommendations surrounding COVID-19, and after much consideration, we have made the decision to postpone the 2020 Presidential Sites Summit. The White House Historical Association will host the Presidential Sites Summit at the historic Adolphus Hotel in early spring or late fall 2021.

The Summit is an opportunity for leaders of our shared presidential history to convene to share innovative ideas and discuss insights into the management and outreach of presidential libraries, historic homes, and museums. The theme for 2021 is inspired by the words of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, “The White House Belongs to the American People.” This idea — that history belongs to all people — inspires presidential libraries, historic sites, private organizations, and museums to tell more inclusive and accessible histories that give greater insight to the American experience. The Summit will incorporate sessions on a variety of topics from fundraising and civic engagement to recognizing inclusive presidential histories.
