The mission of the Historic Resources Committee (HRC) is to identify, understand, and preserve architectural heritage, both nationally and internationally. HRC is engaged in promoting the role of the historic architect within the profession through the development of information and knowledge among members, allied professional organizations, and the public.We hope you'll join us February 7-8 at the annual HRC Taliesin Colloquium where we'll discuss how codes have impacted existing buildings and what to expect from upcoming code changes.
The DC Chapter of the Association for Preservation Technology is accepting presentation proposals for our annual Symposium! This year's theme is The Preservationist's Toolkit: Exploring Diverse Approaches to Historic Preservation in which we'll address ways in which preservationists have utilized and/or adapted diverse technologies and practices from allied fields for the benefit of preserving our built heritage and advancing approaches to historic preservation. The symposium will be held on Friday, September 20, 2019 at the Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington at Mount Vernon.
Proposals for presentations ranging from 20-40 minutes will be accepted. We are also excited to announce that we will be hosting a student poster session, giving students and recent graduates an opportunity to share work related to this year's theme. The full call for presentations and student posters is available on the website's symposium page. The submission deadline is May 6, 2019. We look forward to receiving your presentation and poster abstracts!Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
