Washington D.C. welcomes you to our next National Docent Symposium, October 24 to 27, 2019.

Join us as we Capitalize on Experience, coming together to share our collective expertise so that we all may grow and improve in our craft and offer our visitors our very best. At about 400 volunteers strong, representing art, history and science institutions this year’s event will brim with new discoveries. Outside the conference rooms, you’ll find much to discover as well. From its rich heritage, unmatched cultural, historical and political institutions to the beauty of its architecture, gardens and green spaces you’ll leave D.C. feeling refreshed, recharged and ready to capitalize on your own experiences.
