Sunday, September 20 – Wednesday, September 23, 2020

Fetzer Center, Western Michigan University

Thank you for patience and support. We look forward to seeing you in Kalamazoo in September!

Each spring, the Network sponsors the state’s only annual statewide preservation conference to provide training and networking opportunities geared to both beginners and seasoned preservationists.

In addition to offering sessions with the latest news and information from around the state, the conference is known for its keynote speakers, festive evening activities, and annual auction of Michigan items ranging from overnights at historic bed-and-breakfasts, to antiques, books, and gourmet delights.

Among the many features of the gathering is the Vendor’s Showcase, which provides an opportunity for the general public to view the latest products and services in the preservation industry.
