Call for Sessions: Presidio, San Francisco, Preservation Conference - April 2016
Be a part of California's 41st Annual Historic Preservation Conference at the Presidio, San Francisco, April 18th-21st, 2016. 

California Preservation Foundation's conferences draw over 500 professionals from across the state, country - even internationally. This year's theme, "New Acts, New Assets: The Changing Face of Preservation" will reflect on the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act and look ahead to the future. 

The success of the conference will hinge on your session proposals! Submit your session proposal here >>

The deadline for session proposals is Friday, July 31st, 2015.

Our conference committee identified seven potential themes. Your proposal should ideally fall into one of the following themes (though you are also free to suggest your own theme).

1. Community, Activism, Leadership
  • Including tools to honor heritage; how communities use such tools to preserve neighborhoods. Community integrity - community identity¬∑ Community organizing - Why is community important?
2. 50 years back, 50 years forward: Getting Beyond the National Historic Preservation Act
  • Best practices beyond California¬∑ Preservation ordinances in smaller communities
  • How has the NHPA trickled down to individual communities
  • Preservation as regulatory tool - where it goes too far and where it doesn't go far enough
  • "Best of the Best" - What endures the test of time. What have we done well
  • Unique Legislation
  • Looking Back at urban renewal - Looking ahead to large scale redevelopment
  • Past preservation battles as case studies on what worked and what didn't work
