The Oregon Heritage Conference features at least one new idea this year: online registration.

The conference takes place May 4-7 this year in the state's Capitol Building. The conference will bring together hundreds of people who love and work with Oregon's heritage. Designed to be interdisciplinary, the conference focuses on all sectors of heritage, such as historic preservation, museums, archives, libraries, and local and state government. By bringing everyone together in one place, we can begin to realize that our work in heritage is all interconnected, that we have similar problems, and, together, can create better solutions.

The Heritage Conference also includes workshops, tours, and breakout sessions that are equal parts innovation and practical advice. You can register for these special activities online, too. Preliminary descriptions of each session are now available at the conference's website<http://www.oregon.gov/oprd/HCD/OHC/Pages/Conference.aspx>.

The conference theme is "16 Going on 20, 50, 100: Reflecting on the Past, Capitolizing on the Present and Building the Future." The theme highlights several major heritage anniversaries, including the 20th anniversary of the first meeting of the Oregon Heritage Commission and the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act.

Bob Beatty, the chief operating officer of the American Association for State and Local History, and historian Reiko Hillyer of Lewis and Clark College in Portland, will be the keynote speakers. Oregon Heritage, a division of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, is organizing the conference.
