Annual Conference

OCTOBER 28-30, 2017
Brown Hotel

The English-Speaking Union welcomes all members for a weekend in Louisville, Kentucky October 28-30 for the 2017 Annual Conference. This year's conference will further develop and define English in Action as the banner under which the ESU employs English as a medium for peace and understanding in a shrinking, turbulent world. It will include presentations, speakers, social events, camaraderie and updates on our efforts nationwide to fulfill our programs supporting teachers, students and recent immigrants. The cost of the conference is $370 with an optional day of events for $100.

The venue for the conference will be the legendary Brown Hotel in downtown Louisville, Kentucky. A centerpiece of Louisville since its construction in 1923, The Brown will provide an elegant and historic foreground to the weekend's proceedings.  Register here.
