Do you have an affinity for history, collections care, historic places or economic development? Do you like to eat? If you do, the Oregon Heritage Conference April 23-25 in Albany will be a great place to combine food with casual conversation and networking with people who have similar interests as yours.


The Conference’s special affinity lunches on two days will bring together colleagues from around Oregon wanting to share information, ideas, questions and a bite to eat. You will be able to bite into lunch and talk about these topics:

         railroad heritage,

         a possible Oregon rehabilitation tax credit,

         an African American historic places survey,

         military heritage,

         Main Street, or

         collections care issues.


The Oregon Heritage Conference will take place April 23-25 in historic downtown Albany with the theme of "Celebrate, Recreate, Invigorate."  An engaging keynote talk, special tours, cutting-edge research expositions, and meeting colleagues from across the state are important benefits for attending. The Oregon Heritage Excellence Awards will take place on the evening of April 24.


Some of the affinity lunches are scheduled for downtown restaurants that feature locally grown foods. The dates of the specific lunches are found on the Heritage Conference registration form that can be found at
