Format
We will be using the Zoom Webinar platform to deliver 2-3 virtual sessions per day. Registrants will be sent instructions to join the sessions and will be able to participate by submitting questions during the Q&A portion of the presentations.

The conference will offer topics ranging from general preservation to economic incentives and tools for historic preservation communities. 

Keynote
Our keynote speakers Seth Clark and Tracie Revis are Directors of the Ocmulgee National Park and Preserve Initiative in Macon, Georgia. 

Clark, the Mayor Pro Tempore of Macon-Bibb County, and Revis, a Muscogee (Creek) citizen, Indian Law expert, and former Chief of Staff of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation, lead this partnership of non-tribal and tribal citizens to expand and preserve the Ocmulgee Mounds National Historical Park as Georgia’s first National Park and Preserve. 

They will discuss how this project brings together the two communities bound by these sacred sites and intricate ecosystem, how it has served as an act of reconciliation, and the history and process behind the multi-generational effort to create a National Park and Preserve. 

Agenda
The conference program is now available. Please note the agenda is subject to change.
