Posted by: aptpreservation on Wednesday, September 29, 2010 at 12:00:00 am

If you haven’t explored the APT conference website yet, we’ve got plenty of resources to help you get the most out of your experience in Denver.  you can decide which paper sessions you will attend by track, session, or papers presented.  Check out the abstracts by clicking on the link for each session. Papers will be presented on Friday and Saturday, October 8 and 9.

You will want to take time to see some of the area’s treasures on one of the six field sessions. In addition to walking about architecturally-rich downtown Denver or Fort Collins, you can see restored structures in Rocky Mountain National Park, travel on a narrow gauge railroad in mining country or examine ice cores extracted from Antarctica, Greenland and North America.

Get your hands on soil, concrete or envelopes during one of the three workshops designed to give preservationists a hands-on, in-depth learning experience with industry experts.

This year’s Sustainability Symposium, presented in collaboration with the GSA and AIA HRC, it is designed to explore issues related to sustainability and the stewardship of existing buildings.

In addition, you’ll find hotel and travel details, continuing education information, exhibit and sponsor opportunities, and even a list of meetings scheduled during the Conference.

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.
