CA Preservation Conference: Preservation on the Edge

California’s historic preservation community is coming to your doorstep!

The California Preservation Conference May 15 – 18 is a unique opportunity to participate in special tours, educational workshops, and events exploring preservation and its essential role in sustainability, economic development and community character.

Registration is now open. See the California Preservation Foundation website for all the details. You can select only what appeals to you most or immerse yourself by registering for the whole conference. Early registration discounts apply through April 8 and many Study Tours, Workshops and Events sell out quickly, so don’t delay.

Get an inside look at the Conference: Volunteers are now being recruited for assistance with registration, educational sessions, tours and special events as well as technical support.

Know a high school or middle school student with an interest in film making and preservation? The conference will showcase winners of CPF’s 2ndAnnual Youth Film Competition which this year is partnering with Santa Monica's own Teen Film Festival, SMTFF. Click here to download details on the film competition. The deadline for submissions is Friday April 1 to be considered for both CPF and SMTFF, Thursday April 21 for only the CPF competition.

Have a preservation story you would like to tell? The Three-Minute Success Stories program on Monday night (May 16) is traditionally one of the most popular events of the conference, combining compelling preservation stories with dramatic and amusing presentations. Wrapping preservation narratives in a bit of vaudeville makes for a memorable evening, and the historic Santa Monica Bay Woman’s Club will provide an ideal venue. The deadline for submissions is April 15. Click here for the application and details.

For more information on all aspects of the conference, see the California Preservation Foundation website or call 415-495-0349.

The Santa Monica Conservancy is very pleased to bring this statewide conference to Santa Monica, and thanks the many local partnering organizations, sponsors and volunteers who have made this possible.
