Oregon Heritage Conference
2013 Oregon Heritage Conference
Connect Through Stewardship
The abundance of opportunities for stewarding Oregon heritage will be the center of workshops, speakers, and panels at this year's conference. Whether you are documenting and preserving an important collection or building, preparing for a disaster, advocating for support, or creating a new appreciation for Oregon heritage in its many forms, you will want to attend. The Oregon Heritage Excellence Awards presentations, an affecting keynote talk, special tours, cutting-edge research expositions, and meeting colleagues from across the state are important bonuses.
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.
