Do you want to know more about the National Preservation Conference to be held in Buffalo by the National Trust for Historic Preservation in October 2011? Are you simply curious or would you like to contribute something? The NTHP will join with Preservation Buffalo Niagara to initiate the local planning on July 7, 2010 at 5:00 at the Albright Knox Art Gallery.
This public meeting is open to anyone interested in learning about the conference and how to become a volunteer. The NTHP depends on interested volunteers and the advice and participation of local preservation partners to plan and carry out the conference. If you know of a colleague or volunteer who may be interested in attending, please invite them to the meeting.
The conference is the premier educational gathering for historic preservation in the United States and a remarkable opportunity for Buffalo and the Greater Niagara Region to work together, using our natural and built environments to showcase the preservation, conservation and revitalization achievements of our community and its surrounding areas. Local Planning will help prepare for workshops, discussion groups, case studies and tours. The most popular part of every national conference is the opportunity to explore the host city and surrounding region. Tours by foot, bus, bike and boat will help feature our abundant architectural and landscape resources as well as our cultural history.
You can pre-register for this meeting by e-mail to email@example.com, or by calling 716-852-3300 before July 6.
Doors open at 5:00 and the presentation will begin at 5:30. Our guests will be Valecia Crisafulli, Acting Vice President, Programs and Lori Feinman, Associate Director for Conferences and Training, Center for Preservation Leadership.
We look forward to seeing you.
