2019 Preserve Iowa Summit

The Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs/State Historic Preservation Office, the City of Newton, and the Newton Historic Preservation Commission will present the sixth annual Preserve Iowa Summit on June 6-8, 2019.

The Preserve Iowa Summit is the state’s premier conference for professionals and volunteers involved in historic preservation in Iowa. The theme of the 2019 conference, Reinvention through Rehabilitation, draws on Newton’s recent revitalization success, where historic preservation was a key part of the city’s economic development strategy.

General sessions, concurrent breakout sessions, and hands-on educational training will occur throughout the two and one half day conference -- as well as informational tours, networking opportunities, and an exhibit hall.

Would you like to attend this conference at no cost? Do you have a high-quality presentation that would be appropriate for historic preservation professionals and volunteers? Have you heard someone present at a conference you think would be a great speaker for the Summit?

We hope that a number of successes, ideas, and expertise from across the Midwest and beyond will be part of the 2019 Preserve Iowa Summit and urge you to consider submitting a session proposal. Please pass this message along to anyone you know who could provide training at this conference.

Below you will find details and the application. Deadline for proposals is November 19.
