Conference Attendees...

Conference Attendees,


The experience in Kansas City promises to be extraordinary, especially with the World Series happening at the same time. The atmosphere will be bracing. So will the workshops, tours, papers, and especially the conversations and interactions between everyone sharing in the experience.


There will be too much going on for any ten people to take in so we are asking you to help share your experience by submitting short pieces to be posted on the APT Blog.

You can write about whatever strikes you: an informative lecture; an inspiring field session; fabulous meals; grat conversations with old or new friends; or anything else that captures the conference experience. The posts can be as long or as short as you like and can include images, which should be .jpg files no larger than about 350kb.


Blog posts will benefit people who are unable to attend, but will also fill in conference attendees on what transpired in other venues or other paper sessions. We all know how frustrating it is to have to pick between sessions. Informative blog posts could ease some of that frustration by reporting on the papers you weren’t able to hear.


So please enhance the conference experience for all by sending your posts in an email, preferably during the conference, to: with the title of the post and your name.

Welcome to the APT Blog

"It has been said that, at its best, preservation engages the past in a conversation with the present over a mutual concern for the future."
- William Murtagh, Keeping Time: The History and Theory of Preservation in America

In our increasingly digital age, the face and form of this conversation is transforming. Social media has become a driving and influential force in every aspect of our lives: politics, community, religion, entertainment. It should be no surprise that the preservation field is wholeheartedly embracing social media outlets. A quick internet search of something as simple as "historic preservation blog" resulted in more than 86,000 results.

The Association for Preservation Technology International is pleased to add our voices to this new conversation.

For over forty years, APT has been a leader in preservation technology, providing not only education and technical training opportunities but also providing a social venue for the sharing of experience and knowledge. This blog is a new approach to hosting our part of the conversation between the past and the present, developed around a user-generated dialogue and aimed at promoting interaction and participation.
