Partner Meetings are among FFNHA’s primary means of fulfilling its mission. The events, which include speakers, breakout sessions, and best-practices seminars, encourage communication between the organization, FFNHA partners, and the communities they serve.
Attendees must RSVP and, if desired, pay for lunch five business days prior to the meeting. We no longer accept cash payments.
Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area (FFNHA) is dedicated to building awareness of the struggles for freedom in western Missouri and eastern Kansas. Its themes are the settlement of the frontier, the Missouri-Kansas Border War and Civil War, and the enduring struggle for freedom. These diverse, interwoven, and nationally important stories grew from a unique physical and cultural landscape. FFNHA inspires respect for multiple perspectives and empowers residents to preserve and share these stories. We achieve our goals through interpretation, preservation, conservation, and education for all residents and visitors.
