Hosted by National Alliance of Preservation Commissions
The National Alliance of Preservation Commissions has made the difficult decision to cancel FORUM 2020: Preservation Coast to Coast as an in-person conference that was set to be held July 22 to 26 in Tacoma, Washington. NAPC intends to provide online training and education through an interactive platform that will draw upon many of the sessions and speakers we were planning for FORUM in Tacoma. We will also be highlighting the City of Tacoma through interactive virtual tours and experiences. We are grateful for the support of our local, state and national partners as we shift gears to enhancing our current content to an educational and exciting online experience.
Hosted by Maryland Commission for Women, Maryland Women's Heritage Center
Save the date for the 2020 Maryland Women’s Leadership Conference on Wednesday, August 26, 2020 in Annapolis presented by the Maryland Commission for Women with the Maryland Women’s Heritage Center. Celebrate 100 years of women’s voting rights, commemorate Maryland women who contributed to the campaign for women’s suffrage, and continue the tradition of advocacy for the women and girls of Maryland.
Given the illegal nature of its operations, sites of the Underground Railroad across the United State were often hidden and secret. That necessity now presents a challenge to preservationists dedicated to identifying, preserving, and interpreting these important histories where they happened. Speakers for this session include Dr. Kate Clifford Larson, author and historian, and Heather Ersts, Outreach & Partnership Coordinator for the Maryland Department of Tourism Development.
