Sessions focusing on heritage advocacy and outreach are part of this
year's Oregon Heritage Conference scheduled for May 9-10 in Portland.

These sessions will be offered during the second day of the conference.
Topics include tactics for advocacy for heritage organizations, reaching
out to audiences beyond the usual heritage and historic preservation
crowd, and case studies for engaging your community in heritage
projects. Follow-up these sessions with a self-guided tour of the Oswego
Iron Furnace and Iron Heritage Trail, another great outreach project
located in nearby Lake Oswego.

The conference theme is “Connect Through Stewardship,” and other
sessions will focus on adaptive reuse of historic buildings,
appreciation and management of mid-century modern buildings, and
collections care and disaster preparedness.

Attendees will include community leaders, staff and volunteers from
historical societies, museums, archives, historic cemeteries, ethnic
organizations, schools, historic preservation commissions, humanities
groups, Main Street programs, the tourism industry, economic
development, staff from local, state, and federal governments, and
professional historians and preservationists.
