Registration Now Open: for the 2013 Massachusetts Historic Preservation Conference

August 15, 2013: Mark your calendars for this year’s Massachusetts Historic Preservation Conference, which will take place on October 18, 2013 in Lexington. The conference will bring together architects, activists, planners, community members and experts in the fields of historic restoration, rehabilitation and adaptive-use.

Speakers will share their knowledge and experience in tackling preservation obstacles including code and accessibility issues, unique and challenging properties, conversion of industrial to residential, reuse of municipal buildings, long- and short-term maintenance planning, energy efficiency and green solutions. Drawing from local case studies, the Community Preservation Coalition will offer perspectives on how to use Community Preservation Act (CPA) funds to successfully implement historic preservation projects. Find out more about our workshop and others here.

In addition to speaker presentations, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in technical workshops, introductory and advanced training sessions, and group discussions on challenges, successes and solutions.

The 2013 Massachusetts Historic Preservation Conference is organized by members of the Massachusetts Preservation Coalition. The conference host is the Lexington Historical Commission with the support of the Town of Lexington and the Lexington Historical Society. The Coalition looks forward to bringing the preservation community together to share ideas, discuss challenges, and celebrate successes.
