“CWRT Congress: The State of the Civil War Round Tables”

– Mike Movius

May 18, 2021


The mission of the CWRT Congress is to provide new and existing Civil War Round Tables with time-tested tools to help them expand their membership, reduce operating costs, have effective governance structures, develop meaningful partnerships and raise sufficient funds for quality programs and historic preservation. These elements should assist CWRTs to become sustainable organizations and to avoid actions that could damage their integrity, effectiveness and efficiency.  Mike Movius will present the Congress’s development and history, as well as the “state of the union” of all round tables in the U.S and what the Congress is doing to help.
