The newest post<https://oregonheritage.wordpress.com/2017/05/01/summit-on-funding-call-to-action/> on Oregon Heritage Exchange features the recent Oregon Heritage Summit<http://www.oregon.gov/oprd/HCD/OHC/Pages/Conference.aspx> and a call to action. Last week, the Oregon Heritage Summit on funding brought together over one hundred people representing museums, Main Street organizations, and preservation groups among many more to discuss funding solutions for heritage work. The National Survey of Heritage Funding and Incentive Programs: Opportunities for Oregon<http://www.oregon.gov/oprd/HCD/FINASST/docs/2017NationalHeritageFundingReport.pdf>, a study commissioned by the Oregon Heritage Commission, was presented and participants brainstormed on methods of funding and working together for shared funding. The survey and some of the outcomes of the discussion can be found on the Oregon Heritage Exchange Blog<https://oregonheritage.wordpress.com/2017/05/01/summit-on-funding-call-to-action/>.


May is National Historic Preservation Month and for Oregon communities throughout the state it's an opportunity to reflect on significant places, artifacts, and collections that help tell the stories of our past as well as to recognize contributions that individuals and organizations preserve those stories and places.
