The War College takes place in the Deborah Clarke Mars Education Center and is open to the public; pre-registration is required. Space is limited. Those who are interested should register early. A War College brochure and registration form can be downloaded here. For more information on the War College speakers, lodging suggestions, and general registration information click here.
