Cultural resource practitioners usually look to the past for our data—searching historical records, looking at old buildings, gathering oral histories from community elders, or digging important sites. Like many organizations in 2020, though, we’re taking our conference to the future instead. Using the most up-to-date technologies, we hosted our 2020 conference virtually over two half days on September 24 and 25.
A combination of webinars and interactive round tables were presented on both days. Many of this year's sessions focused on diversity and inclusion, both within the cultural resource management industry and the larger historic preservation field. Sessions ranged from an update from the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation to in-depth dialogues on diversity in historic preservation.
