The California Preservation Foundation is holding their 35th annual California Preservation Conference in Nevada City and Grass Valley from May 12-15th. Volunteer to assist with the conference, and you can hear expert presentations for free.
The Conference is entitled: “The Sierra Nevada: Preserving A Sense of Place”. Some of the presentations include: “Thar’s Gold in Them Thar Hills”: Uncovering Nuggets for Melding Economic Development and Preservation, Past is Prologue: Preservation as a Sustainable Solution, Heritage Tourism: Refresh and Improve your Community’s “Brand” for Heritage Tourism Promotion, and more.
Volunteers are needed to help with many conference tasks including registration, monitoring, providing information, handling paperwork, and more. Volunteers may attend the Conference Educational Sessions and Plenary Session for free, based on the number of hours volunteered. In addition, volunteers will be invited to a Thank-You Event which will take place after the Conference.
Members of the public who are not California Preservation Foundation members may also get tickets to attend the numerous educational sessions and workshops presented by experts.
The Conference will also feature continuing education credits for qualifying specialties, exclusive tours that highlight Nevada County’s rich history, architecture, and natural beauty, and special events in Nevada County’s most historical locations.
