2023 Preservation Conference

APRIL 13-15


Join us lakeside in 2023, in the small Finger Lakes City of Auburn! At this year’s Conference, we’re going Back to Basics, exploring some of the programs and topics that are foundational to historic preservation. You’ll still get the challenging and progressive preservation content that you know and love—with a focus on a few key topics: preservation in small upstate cities, the Main Street model, preparing for New York State’s upcoming anniversaries, and the intersection of preservation and affordable housing.

With a more compact schedule (we’ll have one set of sessions with all attendees in one big room) and enhanced opportunities to pose your questions, this year’s event is designed to be a convening of grassroots and professional preservationists from across the state. Your voice and perspective will be an essential part of the conversation.
