Networking Opportunities

October 14, 2020

PastForward is the place to share ideas, learn from others, and build the networks that will continue throughout your career. And, while we'll be virtually meeting this year, there will still be plenty of chances to engage with your peers and colleagues from across the country.

  • Town Hall Meetings: Using digital tools, these interactive sessions will provide you an opportunity to share your own beliefs and ideas for action on the topics of climate change, equitable development, and the relevancy of preservation. Share how you think our movement needs to evolve to be both relevant and resilient.
  • Educational Sessions: Express your own thoughts, share a current challenge, and offer lessons learned the hard way during the six affinity meetings, four plenaries, and 32 concurrent sessions.
  • Social Activities: Join your fellow attendees after an invigorating day of sessions for some fun! Show off your knowledge in a fun trivia competition in a battle to take home the preservation crown and fun prizes! Take an armchair tour of four sites associated with women’s history or learn how to express yourself through Zine making. On the last evening of the conference, unwind with your peers during one of seven happy hours.

Join more than 2,000 preservationists and preservation lovers at the nation’s premier online conference for those who work to save, sustain, and interpret historic places.

Join us for PastForward Online 2020, the historic preservation event of the year, October 27-30, 2020.
