PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP: PRESERVATION LEADERSHIP TRAINING (PLT) INTENSIVE
Date/Time: Wednesday, August 8 – 8:30am-5:00pm
Location: Hampton University Museum, Education Center, 2nd floor, Hampton, VA
The National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC), in partnership with the National Trust for Historic Preservation (NTHP), is underwriting a professional development opportunity for up to 30 selected participants. The Trust’s PLT: Intensive focuses on specific, high-level, challenging content areas in the preservation profession for a heterogeneous audience, in this case directors, curators, interpreters, preservationist, scholars, volunteers, docents, and other professionals dealing with various challenges to protect the physical structure of black museum and/or historic sites. The training will be led by staff from divisions across the NTHP, as well as other experts in the field. The goal of the workshop is to offer a unique training opportunity to equip participants with preservation-related knowledge, skills, and tools to apply directly to their day-to-day work.
During the workshop, participants will learn:
- Preservation basics and best practices for preservation business planning
- A “comprehensive” approach to preservation planning, including but not limited to routine maintenance, significance of site, and collections management with emphasis on the building, landscape and artifacts as the museum collection
- Strategic planning tools for nonprofit organizations with a heavy focus on fundraising and advocacy as it relates to preservation
Selected participants will be required to pay a reduced $85 fee, which includes the all-day training along with breakfast and lunch, which will be served on site.
