Together with our Conference partners and sponsors, we’re also stretching out the breakout sessions over two days so that you don’t have to choose between your favorite sessions. With the new Opening Plenaries on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings and Lightning Round presentations Tuesday evening, we’ll have more opportunities for discussions that push the preservation field forward. Join us!

AND – don’t forget to apply for a range of scholarships still available to conference attendees!

PACNY is proud to present its very own YouTube channel!

If you missed the 2020 Annual PACNY Preservation Awards ceremony on November 6th, you can still enjoy the virtual presentation on our new YouTube channel! We will be providing content that explores, explains, and extolls the special cultural and historic resources of Central New York.
