Invitation to the 2024 Preserve AZ Conference & Governor's Heritage Preservation Honor Awards

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

We are delighted to invite you to the 2024 Preserve AZ Conference and Governor's Heritage Preservation Honor Awards, taking place in historic downtown Prescott. This year's conference, themed "Planning the Past, Preserving the Future," is set to be an enriching event filled with insightful sessions, hands-on workshops, and engaging activities. Join us from June 25-28, 2024, as we explore the critical intersections of historic preservation, archaeology, cultural resources management, architecture, and planning.

Conference Overview

Theme: Planning the Past, Preserving the Future

This year's theme pays homage to Prescott's Master Planning initiative, "Preserving the Past, Planning the Future." It underscores the importance of strategic foresight in heritage preservation, resonating with the goals of the Arizona State Historic Preservation Act and Office and the preamble of the National Historic Preservation Act. Our theme highlights that effective preservation requires deliberate planning and action, whether through zoning, financial incentives, or safeguarding archaeological resources. We aim to emphasize that our heritage is a cornerstone for future development, and it must be meticulously planned for preservation to ensure a thriving Arizona for generations to come.
