Upcoming Green Preservation Programs

August 12, 2008

Three upcoming presentations might appeal to historic preservationist with green leanings. One is in Louisiana which may be of interest to some Hoosiers, but I’ll just mention the two in Chicago here (for info on LA just follow the link above.)

CHICAGO – August 12th, 2008

I will be giving the same presentation twice on Tuesday, August 12th: New Directions for the National Trust: Going Green With Historic Preservation . First, I will give this talk at the Chicago Architecture Foundation’s Sustainable Architecture Lunchtime Series at 12:15 pm. Then at 5:30 I will be presenting it to the AIA Chicago at 5:30pm, where it is called Are Older Buildings Green? I believe that the AIA Chicago presentation is sold out, but there is a waiting list.


CHICAGO – September 24-26, 2008

NCSHPO (the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers) is presenting a 2 plus day workshop entitled the National Historic Tax Credit Conference at the historic Blackstone Hotel. This conference marks the one time each year that everyone involved in Historic Tax Credits – public agencies, private owners and developers, and nonprofit organizations – assemble to update their knowledge on the rehab tax credits and meet colleagues from around the country. This year special attention will be paid to completing projects using both LEED and the historic tax credit. My colleagues, Patrice Frey and Emily Wadhams and I, will be presenting a session with California SHPO Wayne Donaldson on Thursday afternoon.
