This month Leigh Burns represented our statewide program at the Past Forward Conference in Washington, DC. Past Forward is a national educational and networking event annually hosted and organized by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. This years conference, hosted just a few months before the 50th Anniversary of Celebration of The National Historic Preservation Month, had more than two thousand preservationists attending. The four day conference took place at the Omni Shoreham Hotel.
Leigh additionally attended the day long historic rehabilitation tax incentives training hosted by the National Park Service. The opening plenary and reception took place at the beautiful Washington Cathedral designated as a national treasure by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and a National Historic Landmark by National Park Service. Past Forward 2016 will be hosted in Houston. For more information about this years conference please visit http://pastforwardconference.org/
