KNOXVILLE,TENN. –Citizens from around the region will learn the tools and practices they need to help protect historic places that matter in September, the East Tennessee Preservation Alliance (ETPA) is hosting the East Tennessee Regional Preservation Conference, the first since ETPA’s re-formation in January. The Conference will take place at the Great Smoky Mountains Heritage Center in Townsend on Friday, September 18, and Saturday, September 19. Fifteen speakers from four states will cover a wide range of preservation-related topics. Everyone is invited to attend and learn more about historic preservation issues affecting all East Tennesseans.

The conference’s Keynote speaker, J. Myrick Howard, has served as Executive Director of Preservation North Carolina for over thirty years, where he has developed the highly-effective Endangered Properties Program. The program has saved more than 600 endangered historic properties, generating an estimated $200 million in private investment. The National Park Service called PNC “the premier statewide preservation organization in the South – if not the nation.” Author of Buying Time for Heritage, Mr. Howard will share his secrets and inspirational stories at the conference.

Other featured speakers include Dr. Carroll Van West, Director of MTSU’s Center for Historic Preservation, who will review a variety of projects around the region, from African American cemeteries to preserving the legacy of the New Deal.
