CALIFORNIA PRESERVATION FOUNDATION’S 34th ANNUAL CONFERENCE  TO BE HELD APRIL 16 – 19, 2009  

Palm Springs Chosen As Ideal Location for Conference Title -- “The Culture of Leisure: Rethinking the California Dream”              

San Francisco, CA (November 14, 2008) - The 33rd Annual Conference of the California Preservation Foundation in Palm Springs is expected to draw an enthusiastic gathering of like-minded preservationists who will ponder and explore the provocative conference topic – The Culture of Leisure: Rethinking the California Dream.            

“Our 2009 annual conference will be an exciting and stimulating event and where better to address the ‘culture of leisure’ than Palm Springs, a quintessential Southern California oasis of leisure,” said Cindy Heitzman, CPF executive director. “We think the focus of the conference will capture the imaginations of our attendees and we are anticipating a very lively discourse about the subject.”            

Among the hundreds of participants expected to attend are city and county planners, architects, landscape architects, community leaders, landmark and historic resource commissioners, historians, archeologists, educators, attorneys, realtors, students, historic property owners, Main Street coordinators, members of Certified Local Governments, developers, contractors, craftsmen, advocates of historic preservation, heritage travelers, and involved citizens from around California and beyond.            

Among the conference highlights are more than 30 engaging sessions and workshops on a variety of issues pertaining to California’s historic, cultural and natural resources. The sessions will feature over 100 speakers who are experts in their fields. To register for the 2009 conference and for more information, visit the CPF website:  californiapreservation.org or call CPF headquarters (415) 495-0349.

In addition, the conference will offer several tours of the Palm Springs vicinity which will enable spectators to experience the unique history, culture and beautiful landscape of this world-renowned tourist destination.             The 2009 CPF Annual Conference will also feature exclusive tours which will highlight Palm Springs’ mid century modern architecture and its many popular sights. In addition, several special events will be held in the city’s most historic and architecturally significant venues.
