On behalf of the Country School Association of America, I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to attend our 14th annual conference, held this year from Sunday, June 15th through Wednesday, June 18th at the Pony Express National Museum  in St. Joseph, Missouri, just outside Kansas City.  Again this year, you have a wide range of choices for registration and payment:  

1)  Online registration with payment by credit card

2)  Online registration with payment by mail (check)

3)  Paper registration with payment by mail (check)


Please check out the attached CSAA 2014 Conf Info & Registration to gain a better understanding of the conference and registration process before you register.  I will notify you via email when the Conference Program Guide is available on our website.

*** IMPORTANT ***  In the ‘online’ registration process, when you see the big “green button” below, select your choice of payment at that time.  (check or credit card as indicated below).  Both payment methods accomplish the full registration process, but the credit option requires you pay “before you submit”, while the check option allows you to pay “after you submit” by mailing a check to the address provided.

To register online, go to our website at  and click on the Annual Conference in the left menu bar.

Annual Conference financial aid and work exchange program deadlines are fast approaching.  Check under Awards & Grants in the left menu bar of our website.

Every year we organize a conference where we invite a diverse group of participants from many different organizations, museums, academic institutions as well as cultural and heritage centers. Each year, we provide museum personnel, teachers, staff, faculty and students, preservationists, historians and re-enactors from across the country, with an intimate forum to exchange ideas, discuss their current activities, programs and issues with colleagues in the field.  With such an energetic atmosphere, wide choice of activities, dynamic events, educational sessions and networking opportunities, you do not want to miss this event.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to the Pony Express National Museum, in St. Joseph, Missouri  in June. 

Should further information be required, please do not hesitate to contact me.
