    Hello All!

    Continuing with a monthly post for you to share your events/deadlines/upcoming activities in one spot for January.

    Please feel free to share in this thread any relevant events, deadlines, or resources that are available the month of January. Even if your event is very geographically specific, I think there's value in all of us seeing what's out there and what people are doing-I know I find it interesting and helpful to learn what's going on out there!

    I'll get it started … I always have something to share here!

    • Letters of Intent for the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund are due Jan. 15. The Action Fund provides grant funding from $50,000 to $150,000 for historic places such as sites, museums, and landscapes representing African American cultural heritage.

    The fine print!

    * The community is meant to be a place for conversation and dialogue, sharing of ideas and asking of questions, I certainly want it to be a comfortable place where you're not bombarded with promotional material, I also want you to be able to share some great events you're hosting or relevant material/resources that you have available. So to that end each month I'll start a thread for you to share events/deadlines/resources that are available in the coming month. Of course, we want the material and events to be relevant and make sense for the community members, but if we all include them in one post, we won't degrade the integrity of the community (per the Code of Conduct we don't want this to be a place where people sell their products or services, but if you have an event coming up that you think people would be interested in or have a call for ideas we can collect those all in one post every month). I also think by sharing events it may spark discussion or generate ideas for things that you may be considering doing.

    If you have questions of what would be appropriate, just send me a message. And, please don't post jobs here-we have a jobs board for that!

    Hello!

    The National Trust has a lot of deadlines to share this month - here's one more:

    We are now accepting applications for the 2020 list of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places. Deadline for submissions is Wednesday, February 5 at 11:59 p.m. EST.  

    Since 1988, the National Trust has used its list of America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places to raise awareness about the threats facing some of our nation's greatest treasures. The list, which has identified more than 300 sites to date, has been so successful in galvanizing preservation efforts that less than five percent of these sites have been lost.

    When evaluating a potential site for inclusion on the list, we consider a range of factors, including its significance, whether there is a local group engaged in its preservation, the urgency of the threat the site faces, and potential solutions to that threat. Sites with a connection to women's history are particularly encouraged to apply this year. 

    We strongly encourage you to contact National Trust staff via email to discuss your site prior to applying.

Don't Worry! Registrants will be able to view the webinar afterwards. Click here to register, full event description below:

    "Signage can be vital to attracting customers, but how do you create visually interesting signs that enhance the historic streetscape, promote business activity, and are compatible with the surrounding historic context? Learn how Denver's Landmark Preservation Staff works with sign applicants through the design review process to serve business needs while also enhancing historic buildings and the streetscape.

    I invite you all to consider submitting a session proposal for the Society of Architectural Historians' 2021 Annual International Conference in Montreal (April 14-18). The submission deadline is January 14, 2020. (Membership is not required to submit a proposal.)

    View the Call for Sessions: https://www.sah.org/2021/call-for-sessions

    Since the principal purpose of the SAH annual conference is to inform attendees of the general state of research in architectural history and related disciplines, session proposals covering every time period and all aspects of the built environment, including landscape and urban history, are encouraged.

    Sessions may be theoretical, methodological, thematic, interdisciplinary, pedagogical, revisionist or documentary in premise and ambition and have broadly conceived or more narrowly focused subjects. Sessions that embrace cross-cultural, transnational and/or non-Western topics are particularly welcome. In every case, the subject should be clearly defined in critical and historical terms.

    Proposals will be selected on the basis of merit and the need to create a well-balanced program. Topics exploring the architecture of Montréal and the greater region are encouraged.

    The intensive Architectural Plastics & Polymer Composites in the 21st Century: Design and Preservation of Contemporary & Historic Architecture conference will be held on March 28-March 29, 2020 at MIT, Cambridge, Massachusetts. This international meeting, organized by Technology & Conservation, the Boston Society of Architects' Historic Resources Committee, and Prof. Goulthorpe, MIT Department of Architecture, will provide in-depth information on:     • currently used plastic and polymer composites for buildings, bridges, and other architectural structure applications, along with an historic perspective  • potential of carbon-polymer composites  • energy aspects including the role of windows, skylights, and translucent building components  • fire resistance behavior  • health and safety implications  • durability, life cycle, and sustainability • new methods of fabrication • performance and evaluation • meeting historic regulations and modern standards • planning and implementing approaches to the conservation/restoration of architecture and works of art  that utilize polymeric material in their construction. In addition, a number of innovative case histories of structures incorporating polymeric materials – such as stadiums, religious buildings, cultural and recreational facilities, educational and government buildings, bridges, transportation centers, and residential complexes – will be detailed.
     
    These informative presentations will be given by more than 25 noted architects, engineers, conservators, polymer specialists, fabricators, cultural resource managers, and other professionals. All of the sessions are designed to offer conference attendees valuable insights into the performance and sustainability of plastics and polymer composites in specific environments . . . and the appropriate selection, specification, use, and maintenance of these materials for existing and new buildings, other structures, building components, and artistic works. Continuing education credits will be available. "Early bird" reduced registration rate is offered up to January 20th.
     
    Information on the conference is available online at:

    Are you (or do you know) a current student or recent graduate of a historic preservation program? Consider applying to be an Advocacy Scholar during Preservation Action's Advocacy Week (March 10-12). You will learn to lobby on Capitol Hill and make valuable connections in the preservation community. Applications are due on February 5. Here is the link for more information: https://preservationaction.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/PA-Advocacy-Scholars-RFQ-2020.pdf
