    Happy New Year Forum Connect!

    I hope everyone had a restful and safe holiday and are back with a new sense of energy for the year to come. I know that 2020 was hard on a variety of levels but I am thankful that we have this community space to share and consider some of the harder questions of historic preservation. In case you missed it...

    1. Take a look at some of the stories and resources from 2020 on Preservation Leadership Forum.
    2. Read Marisa Brown's 7 preservation resolutions for the field
    3. Share your own thoughts, intentions, and resolutions on Forum Connect.

    And don't forget to take the PennPraxis Survey
