[Heritage] Heritage Conference headed to the coast!

The historic Coos Bay region of the central Oregon coast will host the 2015 Oregon Heritage Conference.

The conference theme of  "Chart Your Course" reflects the nautical nature of the region, but also the ability of heritage organizations to find and create successful routes through their challenges. Challenges that will be addressed during the conference include digitization, preservation technologies, storytelling, fund raising, disaster preparedness and tribal restoration.

"The leaders of ships sailing into challenging locations use both their practical knowledge and their understanding of changing conditions to get where they are going," said Kyle Jansson, coordinator of the Oregon Heritage Commission. "We look forward to providing both practical knowledge and appreciation for changing communities, as well as superb locations for the conference events."

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

The conference will include keynote speakers, panels, workshops, and behind-the-scenes visits to some of the area's heritage sites and historic buildings. The Oregon Heritage Excellence Award banquet and the Oregon Heritage Fellowship research talks are also scheduled.

A request for presentations at the conference will be announced shortly.
