Register Today for the 2013 Oregon Heritage Conference

February 20, 2013

Have ideas for heritage advocacy crossed your mind?

Do you need tools for documenting and managing mid-century modern buildings in your community?

What about case studies for engaging new people in your heritage efforts?

All of the above questions — and many more! –will be the focus of this year’s Oregon Heritage Conference on May 9-10 in Portland. The conference will take place at the Architectural Heritage Center, East Bank Saloon, Melody Ballroom and other venues in the Grand Avenue Historic District.

The 1890 Barber Block & Odels building, one of many great historic buildings in the Grant Avenue Historic District.

The abundance of opportunities for stewarding Oregon heritage will be the center of workshops, speakers, and panels at this year’s conference. Whether you are documenting and preserving an important collection or building, preparing for a disaster, advocating for support, or creating a new appreciation for Oregon heritage in its many forms, you will want to attend.

Make plans to attend the Oregon Heritage Excellence Awards banquet being held in the historic Melody Ballroom, where eight individuals, organizations, and projects will be awarded for outstanding efforts on behalf of Oregon heritage. Highlights of the conference will include an affecting keynote talk, special tours (including a behind-the-scenes look of a tile factory), research presentations from Oregon’s Heritage Fellows, and meeting colleagues from across the state.
