Update: Due to the rising numbers in Maryland for the pandemic, we have decided to pivot Bmore Historic to be virtual again this year. Bmore Historic 2021 is now virtual. Since last year’s virtual unconference, we have learned a lot about Zoom and this year we will be offering breakout rooms to facilitate concurrent, small discussions on a variety of topics. Thank you to those who suggested sessions. Check out our schedule!
Bmore Historic 2021 will be on September 10, 2021. Bmore Historic 2020 was held virtually on Friday, September 18, 2020.
