New York Statewide Preservation Conference


The Statewide Preservation Conference will take place April 16-18 in Geneva. Wondering if the Conference is for you? We bet it is. Unlike a lot of Conferences, the New York Statewide Preservation Conference is NOT just for professionals. Typical attendees include: grassroots preservationists, community advocates, neighborhood leaders, architects (CES credits will be available), landscape architects, planners, mayors, municipal board members, historic property owners, students, and non-profit organizations. If you’re working—in any capacity—to revitalize your community, this event is for you!

Even if you can’t make the whole event, swing on down to Geneva Thursday evening, April 16th for the Conference film and the Geneva Pub Crawl. Tickets for the film and pub crawl are just $10 and the first 25 registrants for the crawl get a free t-shirt!
