The National Alliance of Preservation Commissions' biennial FORUM is the only national conference focused on the issues facing local historic preservation commissions and historic districts. FORUM 2016 celebrates both the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act and the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service by focusing on challenges historic communities are confronting today.  Whether it's mitigating the impact of sea level rise, protecting resources of the recent past or recognizing the contributions of diverse cultures to our shared heritage, historic preservation commissions play a key role in saving historic places.

Educational sessions at FORUM 2016 will generally focus on one or more of the following themes:

  • Preservation@50
  • Advocacy
  • Diverse and Underrepresented resources
  • Climate Change
  • Commission Potpourri
We anticipate that FORUM 2016 attendees will represent a broad spectrum of interests in historic preservation, planning, and cultural resource management, from both traditional and some not-so-traditional perspectives. By including the Alabama Trust for Historic Preservation, we will be able to bring together individuals from various arenas within the preservation movement, creating a special synergy for FORUM 2016.
