Announcing the plans for our

31st Fire Museum Seminar

San Antonio, Texas, November 3-6, 2022!

Yep, the San Antonio Fire Museum is gonna do it again!

We’ll start the weekend on Thursday evening, where Guests will be treated to a reception at the San Antonio Fire Museum (5:00pm – 11:00pm.) You’ll tour the Museum and we’ll have snacks, Hors d'Oeuvres and plenty of beverages for everyone to enjoy (and get a sneak peek at our planned expansion!)

The Witte Museum in San Antonio is only about 1 mile from our Museum and we plan to visit the Witte on Friday to see how other museums plan their exhibits and displays.  Great educational exhibits as well as natural history, local history, and art galleries!

Dave Hubert and his wife Barb will be showing off his working 1902 American Steam Fire Engine on Saturday, and afterwards we’ll go once again to FMN Board member Tom Winn’s ranch for a great Texas-style BBQ Dinner!

There will be an “optional” trip to El Mercado, the largest Mexican Market in the United States, and Market Square, where shops, restaurants and bars abound, on Sunday morning! (about 2 miles from the Museum; sorry, does not include a trip to Mexico…)  Shop, drink, and eat in this 3-block market (we will provide free hourly shuttle service to and from the market, 9:30am - 1:30pm)

The Host Hotel for the Seminar will be the historic Menger Hotel where Teddy Roosevelt recruited for his Rough Riders in 1898, just one block from the Fire Museum.  (Menger Hotel Registration link will be posted below on Monday, April 11.)  Seminar presentations will be in the Hotel’s conference center, and hospitality (Network Nights) will be nightly at the Museum.

If you prefer, rooms have also been reserved at the Crockett Hotel, right across the street from the Menger! (Crockett Hotel Registration Link will be posted below on Monday, April 11)

Great News!  The Fire Museum Network will pay the Seminar Registration fees for those of you who join or renew your Annual FMN Membership no later than  May 31st, 2022! (ONE free registration per member – you must register as a paid member no later than May 31st to take advantage of this offer!)  And, of course, the FMN also sponsors Network Nights and provides grants for current Members to attend the Education Seminar and Annual Members' Meeting! (See link to Grant Application below)

Come join us for a fun-filled (and educational) 4 days in San Antonio, the 7th largest city in the U.S., November 3 – 6, 2022!  Great friends, great food, and great fun in S.A.!
