17th annual Saving Places Conference

February 5-7, 2014 This project is paid for in part by a State Historical Fund grant from History Colorado

Conference Highlights Saving Places 2014 The theme for the 2014 conference is “Preservation in Plain Sight: Developing a Community Vision.” The National Historic Preservation Act, passed nearly fifty years ago, established the legal basis that historic resources should be preserved as part of our community fabric, enlightening future generations and ensuring the opportunity to appreciate our country’s diverse cultural heritage. Despite decades of success, historic preservation professionals still face many challenges related to stimulating citizen involvement and inspiring the general population to see preservation in their everyday lives. Colliding with 21st century pressure of profitability and efficiency, industry leaders must demonstrate the value of heritage and place, weaving preservation into larger societal discussions. The 2014 conference aims to empower participants to strengthen partnerships within their local communities, expanding positive perceptions of preservation and encouraging discussions centered on common community visions for the future of preservation. The Saving Places Conference provides a venue for expert practitioners, advocates for preservation and allied professionals to present and discuss today’s challenges, collaborative opportunities and options for the future. The conference draws participants from diverse fields including planning, real estate, archaeology, public history, architecture, museums studies, building trades and students in all of these areas. Saving Places encourages participants to develop and strengthen partnerships within and outside of the preservation community through networking and sharing stories of challenges, opportunities, and success.

AIA & APA Credits! Saving Places offers AIA/CES learning units and APA/AICP Certification Maintenance Credits for all participating members.
