Annual Conference

Preservation NC’s Annual Conference is a 3 day gathering of preservation professionals, students and homeowners that happens in a different part of the state each year.  The 2016 Annual Conference will be in Greensboro, September 28-30.

Our keynote speakers will be Dr. Spencer Crew and Dr. Allan Parnell.

Dr. Crew is the Robinson Professor at George Mason University and will explore the topic of his latest book, which focuses on the WPA recordings of the last living generation of the enslaved in the United States. Click here to learn more about Dr. Crew.

Dr. Parnell is Vice President at the Cedar Grove Institute for Sustainable Communities and he will speak about “Six Disruptive Demographics Trends: What Census 2010 Will Reveal” and how they impact historic preservation.  Click here to learn more about Dr. Parnell.

Additionally, we will have a neighborhood block party, tours, networking events and much more, so be sure to join us in Greensboro this fall!  Please check back often; we’ll post details as they emerge.
