Spokane Awaits...But Savings Like this Won't!

The National Preservation Conference goes west this year - with exciting education and networking opportunities offered only in Spokane, Washington, the heart of the Inland Northwest, the traditional land of dozens of native tribes, breathtaking mountains, and landscapes rich in silver and copper mines and traversed by the railroads that built a nation.

Early Bird Registration — and the Preservation Leadership Forum multiple registration rate — ends on July 31. Don't miss the big savings, the great education and tours that you'll only get at the National Preservation Conference in Spokane.

Join the Conversation

Each morning the conference will kick of with our Preservation Conversation Starters which are complemented by in-depth breakout sessions.

Thursday, 8:30-9:45 a.m.: You Say Wilderness, I Say Preservation! Good vs. Good on Public Lands and Beyond

The 1964 Wilderness Act and the 1966 National Historic Preservation Act both seek to protect what is unique and precious to our nation. So how could two such important acts be in conflict? Join us as we start the conversation and explore ways to resolve this and other conflicts for the good of both sides.

Friday, 8:30-9:45 a.m.: Telling Richer Stories of Place

Plan to be inspired as stewards of some of our nation's most complex and challenging sites tell how they are reaching beyond traditional preservation and interpretation practices to tell a more powerful story of heritage.

Saturday, 8:30-9:45 a.m.: Beyond LEED: A Candid Conversation about Green Building Standards and Preservation

Join the facilitated conversation between the USGBC, overseeing the drive to make our nation's buildings more energy efficient and the preservation community, investigating the energy and environmental benefits of historic buildings, as they bring to the table their unique perspectives, constructive critiques, and useful proposals.

Explore all of the educational opportunities in Spokane.
