Your community manager here! Continuing with a monthly post for you to share your events/deadlines/upcoming activities in one spot for March.
Please feel free to share in this thread any relevant events, deadlines, or resources that are available the month of March. I ask that the information posted in this thread is relevant to the preservation community (see some notes below about this "upcoming events" section). 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-these events could post further conversations, too.
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!
I'll get it started … I always have something to share here!
Forum is hosting a webinar on easements, March 13 at 3 p.m. ET-Ensuring Perpetuity: Effective Easement Monitoring. Speakers will discuss the importance of developing a good monitoring routine, from developing standardized procedures, how to conduct a site visit effectively, different approaches to monitoring reports, and how to address violations. All are welcome to join.
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.
"Enjoy this unique opportunity to learn letterpress and refine your advocacy techniques at Igloo Letterpress in historic downtown Worthington! This 2-hour advocacy workshop will begin with a letterpress workshop, where you will have the opportunity to create preservation-themed postcards. You will love learning this traditional printing technique that has been used since the 1400s (aka hundreds of years)!
After printing your postcards, we will learn advocacy techniques from Sarah Marsom, heritage resource consultant and recipient of the 2018 National Trust for Historic Preservation's Aspire Award. Marsom will delve into strategies to be a champion for historic preservation at both a local and statewide level. Plus you'll learn what top-level historic preservationists are advocating for currently statewide and how you can help. We will conclude the workshop with all participants writing a postcard to a city official or state legislator to promote a historic preservation effort they are passionate about. Postage will be provided. There are only 20 seats available so register now to secure yours!"I am excited to be a part of this Young Ohio Preservationists event and I am honored to be the keynote of Modern Phoenix Week later this month. Many of the Modern Phoenix Week events are at capacity, but you can still sign up for tours of Paolo Soleri's Cosanti, a historic designation celebration, a midcentury property research workshop, and more! Alison King won the National Trust for Historic Preservation American Express Aspire Award in 2013, and it is amazing to see how her initiative - Modern Phoenix has continued to grow.
