National Council on Public History Seeking Working Groups Participants for Annual Meeting in Monterey, California
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: National Council on Public History
Email The Author: ncph@iupui.edu
Website: http://ncph.org/cms/wp-content/uploads/CALL-FOR-POSTERS-Monterey.pdf

The National Council on Public History conference will be held in Monterey, California March 19-22, 2014. 

Working Groups 
The call is out for working group discussants. Working groups, involving facilitators and up to twelve discussants, allow conferees to explore in depth a subject of shared concern before and during the annual meeting. In these seminar-like conversations, participants have a chance to discuss questions raised by specific programs, problems, or initiatives in their own public history practice with peers grappling with similar issues. Working groups articulate a purpose they are working toward, a problem they are actively trying to solve, and aim to create an end product(s), such as a report, article, website, or exhibition. For 2014, eight working groups are being assembled. 
1. Beyond Saving: Achieving Sustainability in Historic Preservation 
2. Consulting Alliances: Obstacles and Opportunities 
3. GenNext: Are Public History Programs Sustainable? 
4. Innovative Reuse in the Post - Industrial City 
5. Public History in China 
6. Sustaining Digital Public History: Workflows for the Future 
7. Sustaining Regional Military History in a Changing Landscape: Cultural Resources, Land Use, and New Technology 
8. Toward a History of Civic Engagement and the Progressive Impulse in Public History

To join a working group, submit a one-paragraph email message describing the issues you wish to raise with your peers, together with a one-page resume, c.v., or biographical statement by October 15. For more information about the working groups, visit: http://ncph.org/cms/wp-content/uploads/Call-for-Working-Group-discussants.pdf

Posters 
NCPH invites proposals for the Poster Session at the annual meeting. The Poster Session is a format for public history presentations about projects that use visual evidence. It offers an alternative for presenters eager to share their work through one-on-one discussion, can be especially useful for work-in-progress, and maybe a particularly appropriate format for presentations where visual or material evidence represents a central component of the project. Email your proposal to ncph@iupui.edu with the subject line “2014 Poster” by October 1. For more information about the Poster Session, visit: http://ncph.org/cms/wp-content/uploads/CALL-FOR-POSTERS-Monterey.pdf

Awards 
NCPH awards recognize excellence in the diverse ways public historians apply their skills to the world around us. The purpose of the award program is to promote professionalism and best practices among public historians and to raise awareness about their activities. Awards are presented to recipients during the annual meeting. Nominations and supporting materials for the awards must be received by December 1.
