Call for Sessions


The organizers of the 2020 Arizona Historic Preservation Conference, June 16-18, 2020 in Tempe have great news to share. It's time to start thinking about how you and your organization can contribute to the conference specifically and historic preservation movement overall by responding to our Call for Sessions. Click here to complete our easy online form.


In the spirit of our theme, PreserVISION 2020, the Programming Committee especially seeks proposals that:

  • Demonstrates organizational strategies that promotes capacity of preservation into the future

  • Utilizes new tools or strategies to tackle old issues

  • Centralizes emerging issues in our fields (i.e., archaeology, advocacy, heritage tourism, architecture, resource management, economic development, etc.)

  • Employs new methods of engagement

  • Emboldens practitioners to utilize education and interpretation as a tool to promote preservation stewardship to new audiences


As you submit your proposals, be sure to consider the following questions:

  1. How does your session address the PreserVISION 2020 theme?

  2. What are the main takeaways for attendees from the proposed session?


Remember that your session title tells 90% of the story. Be sure that it is clear, concise, and attractive enough to inspire attendees to learn more about your topic.


  • Submission deadline: Friday, January 3, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. MST

  • Submissions are accepted online only.


Submission presenters will be notified via email by January 20, 2020 whether or not their session was selected. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the Call for Sessions, contact Joanna Brace via email or 602-364-0059.


Thank you! We look forward to your responses and your attendance in June!
