2010 Annual Meeting
Technology and Highway Safety:
What's Driving Our Future?
Kansas City, Mo., September 26 - 29
Sunday night’s Opening Reception will take place at the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial, where interactive activities and displays bring to life the history of “the war to end all wars.” The museum inspires thought, dialogue, and learning to make the experiences of the World War I era meaningful and relevant for present and future generations.
In the 1920s, Kansas City erected the Liberty Memorial, a national historic landmark that sits on a hill overlooking Kansas City’s downtown skyline, to represent “a living expression for all time of the gratitude of a grateful people to those who offered and who gave their lives in defense of liberty and our country.” President Calvin Coolidge delivered the dedication speech to a crowd of 150,000 people.
The 30,000-square-foot National World War I Museum opened December 2, 2006 and is built beneath the Liberty Memorial’s tower. The Museum houses a collection of more than 55,000 objects – most of which have never before been displayed, using interactive technology to tell the story of the war through the eyes of those who lived it.
