2011 Vision & Goals - Eight Ideas

Idea #8. Prepare for, and build on, the National Trust for Historic Preservation October 2011Conference in Buffalo hosted by Preservation Buffalo Niagara

This event including the infrastructure preparation will go a long way in establishing Buffalo and our region as an international destination for art, architecture, history and nature.

One way to prepare for the 2011 National Trust Conference is for all local organizations to encourage local individual membership in the NTHP with a goal of 2500 local participants attending the Conference, matching the out of town expected attendance. Supporting Preservation Buffalo Niagara as host for the National Conference must also be a creative regional activity.

2011 National Preservation Conference Planning Meeting, July 7, 2010, Buffalo, NY

The 2011 National Preservation Conference will be hosted in Buffalo, NY Oct. 18-22 by Preservation Buffalo Niagara (PBN). The community was invited to a planning meeting at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery on July 7, 2010 that attracted nearly 300 people. Speakers from the National Trust for Historic Preservation included Valecia Crisafulli, acting vice president for programs and Lori Feinman, associate director for conferences and training for the National Trust's Center for Preservation Leadership. The moderator was Catherine Schweitzer, president of PBN. Ed Healy, vice president for marketing, Buffalo Niagara Convention & Visitors Bureau, also spoke of the significant community effort that went into becoming the winning bid for the 2011 Conference. Participants offered many ideas to help make the conference a success and much optimism and enthusiasm was expressed by the NTHP leaders.

The Center for the Study of Art, Architecture, History & Nature (C-SAAHN) has been a supporter of this project since the 2005 National Preservation Conference in Portland,OR and encourages record community participation in 2011. C-SAAHN will sponsor Downtown Library Noon-hour Lectures focusing on the 2011 Preservation Conference in the Fall of 2010 and early 2011 to help accomplish this goal.
