FORUM 2020

Preservation Coast to Coast ~ at Home


About This Event

The National Alliance of Preservation Commissions invites you to join us for
FORUM 2020: Preservation Coast to Coast ~ Home.

Since we can't all be together in Tacoma this year, please join us online for an exciting series of presentations, tours and networking opportunities that will build on the diverse and rich content originally planned for our in-person event.

Mark your calendars for FORUM 2020: Preservation Coast to Coast ~ at Home, held online August 3-9, 2020!

FORUM 2020: Preservation Coast to Coast ~ at Home will feature many of our longstanding traditions such as the Opening and Closing Plenaries, the Commission Excellence Awards, interactive educational sessions, roundtables, and as always, a chance to connect with fellow preservationists from across the country. And since we can't all be there in person, we will bring you a series of thoughtfully curated virtual tours that will spotlight the rich history and historic resources of Tacoma. Each day will consist of multiple educational sessions, awards, featured speakers and events beginning at noon (EDT). All sessions and some virtual tours will be certified for AIA and AICP continuing education credits - for more details - check out our Schedule at a Glance. Check back for updates! Final program and full schedule of sessions and speaker details will be posted here in advance of the conference!
