8th National Forum on Historic Preservation Policy

April 16, 2021 12:00 AM to April 17, 2021 12:00 AM
A critical examination of Preservation & the 21st Century City

The 8th National Forum on Historic Preservation Policy will focus on integrating better historic preservation in local government public policies in the U.S. Unique among professional and academic conferences, fully half of each of the four sessions will be devoted to discussion among presenters and audience. To facilitate this, attendance will be limited to 120 registrants and each will receive an electronic copy of all papers several weeks in advance of the Forum.

We appreciate your bearing with us in these difficult times.  We still hope to hold the 8th National Forum on site in New Orleans in Spring 2021. If this is not possible, it will be held virtually or in a hybrid format on the same dates.
