Next week the National Preservation Conference will open in Spokane, Wash., where preservationists from across the country (and Canada!) will come together to ask big questions, find new answers, and network. And no preservationist should feel left out, because whether you are attending or not, there are a number of ways to connect on line.
So here's your quick cheat sheet on things you need to know. (All of this information and more will be available early next week on the conference homepage.)
- Twitter. Throughout the conference the National Trust will be tweeting from @presnationlive. You can follow the full conference proceedings and answer our #PresConf Question of the Day, using the #presconf hashtag - the same hashtag for Instagram and Pinterest.
- The Preservation Leadership Forum blog. Throughout the week the Preservation Leadership Forum team will be providing daily round-ups on the events of the day, including reports from the Conversation Starters and the National Preservation Awards.
- Live Streaming of the Opening and Closing Plenaries. This year's speakers are Annie Leonard and Knute Berger. Just go to the conference homepage to watch.
But that's not all. Lori Feinman and Susan West Montgomery from our Conference team have pulled together this lively video about what attendees need to know before heading out to the National Preservation Conference.
