At the PastForward 2018 conference, we’ll feature iconic San Francisco, but also show you a progressive city that is tackling climate change and urban density while maintaining its cultural landscape and intangible heritage—issues that will resonate with preservation practitioners across the country.
The second national middle neighborhoods convening will take place on November 13-14, 2018 in Cleveland, Ohio. Themed “Building Advocacy for Middle Neighborhoods,” this convening will bring together the growing movement of practitioners, policymakers, and researchers dedicated to stabilizing “on the edge” neighborhoods around the country. Participants will share insights and learn about recent research efforts. The meeting will also provide practical information about how to mobilize support to better serve these communities.
The American Philatelic Research Library, the American Philatelic Society, and the Smithsonian National Postal Museum jointly produce the Blount Postal History Symposium, which has been held since 2006. The symposium provides a forum for philatelists, academic scholars, postal historians, and the interested public to discuss and present research that integrates philately or the history of postal operations into the broader context of world history.

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.
