Submit your session proposal for
2018 NY Statewide Preservation Conference

The 2018 NY Statewide Preservation Conference takes place in Albany (April 26-28)! We’ll be surrounded by grandiose government architecture, diverse city neighborhoods, historic parks, and amazing adaptive reuse projects. Experts, grassroots community advocates, and new voices in the preservation movement will come together in Albany to learn from one another.

In order to make this conference a success, we need your preservation projects, ideas and initiatives. Share your success stories, challenges, and new ideas with preservationists and community advocates from across the state. Submit your session proposal by Friday, November 3rd (at 11:59 PM) in order to be considered. Proposals on a wide variety of topics are welcome and encouraged.
