Final call! Submit your session proposal today!

Friday is the last day to submit your proposal for an educational session at the NY Statewide Preservation Conference!

For the first time, the Conference will be in downtown Syracuse, March 26-28.

Priorities for 2020:

  • 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, October 25th at midnight.

Have an idea for a session but need more time to get your proposal together? Email Conference organizer, Caitlin Meives, to discuss. 

Submit your proposal

Thank you to our past event sponsors!
