Cultural resource practitioners usually look to the past for our data—searching historical records, looking at old buildings, gathering oral histories from community elders, or digging important sites. Like many organizations in 2020, though, we’re taking our conference to the future instead. Using the most up-to-date technologies, we will be hosting our 2020 conference virtually over two half days on September 24 and 25.
A combination of webinars and interactive round tables will be presented from 1:00 pm–5:00 pm EDT both days. Many of this year's sessions will focus on diversity and inclusion, both within the cultural resource management industry and the larger historic preservation field. Sessions will range from an update from the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation to in-depth dialogues on diversity in historic preservation. You can view the full schedule here.
You will still also get the benefits you enjoy at the in-person conference: special presentation software will allow you to directly network with other attendees and ACRA sponsors. You can sit at a virtual table with colleagues to catch up, discuss the conference content, and more!
As a special thank you to ACRA members, we have provided a discount to the (already low!) standard registration rates. Register today!
