Call for Session Proposals

We are now accepting proposals for educational sessions at the NY Statewide Preservation Conference! The Conference returns to Rochester, NY April 25-27, 2019.

Priorities for 2019:

  • Sessions that include diverse panelists/speakers, including people of color, women, LGBTQ, and youth. All panels should strive to be inclusive and represent diverse perspectives.
  • Topics that address underrepresented communities and current issues regarding social justice and equity as they relate to historic preservation (i.e. gentrification, intangible heritage, non-traditional or new preservation practices)
  • Topics that explicitly address ways in which preservation as a movement and a professional field can become more inclusive and representative.

You do not need to be a preservation professional to share your story. Whether you are a grassroots community activist, an urban planner, a non-profit organization, an architect, a neighborhood group, a developer, property owner, or a municipality, we want to hear from you! We are looking for a diverse range of topics that include everything from neighborhood advocacy and small town revitalization to complex tax credit rehab projects and place-based event planning.

Proposals are due by Friday, November 9th at midnight.

  1. At my company, (KTB Capital LLC, dba Grove Street Management) we are working on starting what is called an Opportunity Fund. Opportunity Funds were enacted as part of the 2017 tax bill – in exchange for investing equity long-term in real estate and/or businesses in historically underserved neighborhoods, investors can receive special tax deductions.

    There are still a lot of details to hash out, but the concept is quickly ganging momentum. I recommend a session on this.
