Colorado Preservation, Inc. held its first historic preservation conference in 1985. The purpose of the conference was to promote the education and networking of individuals interested in historic preservation. The success of the first conference demonstrated a significant interest in gathering preservation professionals on an annual basis. In 1997, the conference format and named changed to “Saving Places” and over the last 18 years, the conference has grown to become the premier preservation event in the Rocky Mountain west, second in size and content only to the National Preservation Conference.
This year’s theme, “Past. Present. Future.” will reflect on the work that has been accomplished to date as well as look to the future of preservation in our state. In addition, the 2016 Conference will kick off Colorado’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of the National Preservation Act. Click here to register!
As always, attendees can expect high-quality educational sessions, informative tours and workshops, presentations by respected professionals, plenty of networking opportunities… and more!
