Revitalize WA Conference
The Department of Archaeology & Historic Preservation, the Washington State Main Street Program and the Washington Trust for Historic Preservation is pleased to announce Washington’s annual statewide conference - RevitalizeWA! The annual conference focuses on historic preservation and economic revitalization (with a focus on Main Streets), and is the State's premier educational and networking event for those in the business of saving historic places. If you're new to preservation, it's a great way to dip your toes into the world of architecture, archaeology and history. You can also learn basic principles of preservation, meet cultural resource professionals, and investigate preservation practices. If you're a professional in the field, it's your chance to discover new preservation techniques, network with collegues and brush up on the latest developments to help you protect the past and shape the future.
