ABOUT THE 2014 CONFERENCE:
The 2014 Statewide Preservation Conference theme is: Fill in the Blank: Defining Preservation, A New York Statewide Conference. One of the primary goals of the Conference is to expand the traditional definitions of preservation and to reach new audiences by challenging some of the common misconceptions about the field. We also want to continue to engage new audiences who have a latent interest in preservation and revitalization but who may not identify themselves as “preservationists” per se.
Target audiences for Conference attendees include: grassroots preservationists in villages, rural towns, and cities through upstate New York; professionals working in the field or allied fields (architects, planners, landscape architects, developers, etc.); elected officials; city neighborhood leaders/activists; students in preservation and allied fields; and young professionals who are engaged in their communities.
Session proposals on a wide variety of preservation and community revitalization related topics are welcome, including but not limited to: maintaining historic buildings; historic landscapes; economic development; Main Street revitalization; heritage tourism; community activism; planning; etc.
