The Annual Preservation and Revitalization Conference is an event in which we here at Preservation Maryland take an immense amount of pride. It is not only one of the largest statewide preservation conferences in the country, regularly drawing over 350 participants, but a great example of successful collaboration across the many constituencies who work to preserve our historic sites and communities.
After the 2011 Conference was held this past May, the Conference Steering Committee evaluated the landscape for the 2012 event. We saw that 2012 would be a year full of exciting events. Below are four events coming to the region in the spring and summer of next year:
- 2012 National Main Streets Conference, Baltimore, MD – April 1-4
- 2012 AIA National Convention and Design Exposition, Washington, D.C. – May 17-19
- Journey Through Hallowed Ground 2012 Annual Conference, Frederick, MD – May 22-23
- National Alliance of Preservation Commissions Biennial Forum, Norfolk, VA – July 18-22
In addition 2012 will offer a wide range of workshops from our statewide and national partners addressing the needs of historic preservation commissioners, heritage areas, museums, and others interested in preservation and public heritage. On top of all these educational opportunities, 2012 will also feature a multitude of events celebrating the bicentennial of the War of 1812 in Maryland.
The Conference Steering Committee saw an opportunity to present a new type of event in 2012. This April we will present a one-day exposition in Baltimore geared towards the many owners of historic homes in Maryland. This historic homes and neighborhoods expo will offer a variety of opportunities for homeowners including an exhibit hall featuring contractors with a high level of expertise in working with older homes. Beyond the exhibit hall the expo will provide hands-on demonstrations and talks on issues relevant to owners of older homes and those living in historic districts. We are in the process of finalizing the date and location and hope you will join us for this new and exciting program.
We will keep you up to date about this and other educational events offered through our partner organizations around the state. If you have any questions or wish to be involved in the Historic Home and Neighborhood Expo, please contact me at 410-685-2886 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
