18th Annual Historic Preservation Conference
Arizona State Parks
June 16-18, 2020
The 18th Annual Arizona Historic Preservation Conference will be held June 16-18, 2020 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, 2100 South Priest Drive, in Tempe. Conference organizers are busy planning all aspects of the 18th annual event under the umbrella theme: PreserVISION 2020.
The conference boasts two full days of programming geared to professionals, with continuing education credits when available, in the fields of historic preservation, archaeology, cultural resources management, architecture, and planning. Also welcome are members of the public who are involved in historic preservation and archaeology through volunteer activities and non-profit or state and local board and commission membership. Programming is also designed to attract elected leadership and staff of our 21 Native American tribes who have a special relationship to Arizona's heritage.
The two days of general programming is supplemented by a half-day of pre-conference workshops, for which registration is limited. The conference also offers mobile tours of historic resources and walking tours of historic downtowns and neighborhoods, for which transportation is provided.

The awards ceremony is the signature event of our annual Arizona Historic Preservation Conference. In 2007, the Governor’s Awards in Public Archaeology were combined with the annual presentation of the Governor’s Heritage Preservation Honor Awards to become the primary forum for recognition of excellence in historic and cultural preservation efforts in Arizona.
