SCHEDULE: The Network Conference will officially begin at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, March 23 and will end at 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 24. Exonerees and their conference-registered family members are invited to a dinner and reception on the evening of Thursday, March 22. The NACDL post-conviction training will be held at The Peabody Memphis on Thursday, March 22 and requires separate registration, which will be open soon.
MARCH, CLOSING EVENT AND EXONERATED MUSICIANS PERFORMANCE: The closing event for the conference this year will be held at the National Civil Rights Museum on Saturday night from 6:30-9:30 p.m. The Peabody Memphis is less than a mile away from the Lorraine Motel, now the National Civil Rights Museum, where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated 50 years ago. At the conclusion of the conference, led by over 200 exonerated men and women and their families, we will all march to the museum together. Admission to the closing event for exonerees and their conference-registered family members is free, and is $55 for all other attendees. Tickets include a buffet, two drink tickets (wine, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages), admission to the museum exhibits, and the performance by the Exoneree Band. If you are an exoneree or a conference-registered exoneree family member, no additional registration is required to attend. If you are a student, Innocence Network member, public interest/government attendee, or a general admission attendee, you must purchase a ticket in addition to your conference registration to attend.
MEALS: Breakfast and lunch will be provided to all conference attendees on Friday and Saturday. Dinner will be provided on Friday evening. A buffet will be provided to attendees of the Saturday night Closing Event.
