The Virginia Preservation Conference is back! This year, it will take place in Danville, Virginia on Thursday, October 18, 2018 and Friday, October 19, 2018 at the Community Market. Programming will echo the modern preservation movement, which recognizes the need for a more inclusive representation of increasingly socio-economically, racially and ethnically diverse communities. A particular focus will be placed on the importance of protecting Virginia’s diverse historic resources that tell a more accurate and comprehensive story of the Commonwealth’s unique identity. Well-known principal of PlaceEconomics, Donovan Rypkema, will be our keynote speaker.
