OUR KEYNOTE SPEAKER

“Reset to Default: Making Preservation the New Normal”
Jim Lindberg, National Trust for Historic Preservation

Collaboration and partnership are a key part of any successful preservation effort and in this, the first Old Line State Summit since the launch of Smart Growth Maryland, the plenary talk will explore the importance of this broad coalition to build systems that encourage building reuse.

Jim Lindberg, Senior Policy Director for the National Trust for Historic Preservation, will discuss the ways the goals of preservation are interconnected with those of advocates for issues like the environment, community health, and equitable development.

Research across these various fields demonstrates the need to build new rules and unwind entrenched thinking on building communities. The aim to create places that are greener, healthier, and more equitable applies to urban and rural communities alike.

MORE ABOUT THE SUMMIT

This one-day event is for anyone who is committed to protecting the places that make Maryland special and those who want to know more about how to use new tools, grow effective collaborations, and hone their preservation skills. Attendees and speakers for this one-day conference vary from planners, architects, Main Street professionals, museum volunteers and staff, students, businesses, and more.

Topics will include placemaking, smart growth advocacy, augmented and virtual reality technologies at historic sites, real estate development, architectural documentation and cemetery documentation, engaging new visitors with Latinx history and outreach, climate change, and a tour of Frederick’s architecture.
