The 2016 Statewide Preservation Conference will take place May 5-7 in Albany and Troy. We’re moving east to the Capital Region to mark the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA).
This year’s Conference theme is Preservation50: NYS. Preservation50 is a nationwide effort to celebrate, learn from, and leverage the NHPA’s first five decades to assure historic preservation’s vibrant future in America. The 2016 Statewide Preservation Conference will be all about celebrating our past achievements and planning for the future of historic preservation in New York State.
The Conference is the only event of its kind in the state – a multi-day gathering for anyone involved in preservation and community revitalization. It’s an opportunity to learn, network, become inspired and have fun.
The Conference is for grassroots preservationists in villages, rural towns, and cities throughout New York; professionals working in the field or allied fields (architects, planners, landscape architects, developers and more); elected officials and municipal board members; city neighborhood leaders/activists; and students in preservation and allied fields.
The 2016 NY Statewide Preservation Conference is presented by The Landmark Society of Western New York, in collaboration with Historic Albany Foundation, the Preservation League of New York State, and the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
