The 2017 Pennsylvania Statewide Conference on Heritage will take place Wednesday, June 14 through Friday, June 16.
Wednesday, Preservation Pennsylvania’s Annual Meeting invites all members to attend a luncheon (separate registration/RSVP required). The Plenary session will be held from 1:30 - 2:45 p.m. with sessions and a community event to follow. Our plenary speaker will discuss the Orton Family Community Heart & Soul® project, which "reconnects people with what they love most about their town and translates those personal and emotional connections into a blueprint that serves as the foundation for future community decisions. It's a barn-raising approach to community planning and development designed to increase participation in local decision-making and empower residents to shape the future of their communities in a way that upholds the unique character of each place."
On Thursday, a full day of sessions will inspire and enhance your preservation practice. "A Night at the Museum" reception will take place at the Cumberland County Historical Society from 5:00-7:30 p.m.
Friday offers a morning of sessions with the conference concluding at 12:30 p.m.
