PMN 2015: Keynote Address

Wednesday, October 21st, 2015

2016 will be a seminal year in the life of historic preservation. The National Historic Preservation Act turns 50, offering us an opportunity for reflection and a chance to consider what we might want our own contribution to the history of preservation to say about who we are and what we valued. Susan West Montgomery, Vice President for Preservation Resources at the National Trust for Historic Preservation, will consider the impulses and advocacy efforts that brought the Act to life and discuss the role we might play in its evolution.
