The audience for the conference includes: City and County Planners, Historic District Commissioners, Preservation Educators, Main Street Communities, Architects, State and Federal Employees, and Public Historians and interested community members. Each year the Conference presents high quality sessions, workshops, and study tours that address some of the most important issues facing preservationists in California. The Conference Program Committee seeks sessions that will be interactive, engage the audience, present fresh approaches, and be easily applicable to participants.

Within each track, four 90 minute education sessions and one mobile workshop will be developed.
