Call for Conference Presentations

Bringing preservation professionals together to share ideas is one of the hallmarks of the annual NCPC conference. Each year we look forward to welcoming many voices to the table to celebrate preservation efforts across the state and to learn from one another. This year’s conference, the first in-person gathering in three years, takes as its theme a metaphorical potluck. Recognizing that there are a wide variety of projects, interests, and challenges in the field, NCPC invites proposals on any topic that the preservation community feels is important. We are embracing a broad theme and keeping an open mind to find out what’s cooking in cultural heritage.

The deadline for submitting proposals is October 6, 2022 at 11:59 PM.

Introducing our NEW Executive Director

The North Carolina Preservation Consortium is pleased to announce the appointment of Dana Corson as our new Executive Director.  Ms. Corson currently serves as the Preservation Planner for the City of Wilson, North Carolina.  Previous to her joining the City of Wilson, she was Preservation Manager for Historic New England in Boston, Massachusetts and served as Historic Preservation Planner for the City of Newport, Rhode Island.  She holds a Bachelor of Science in Historic Preservation from Roger Williams University and a Master of Fine Arts in Historic Preservation from the Savannah College of Art and Design.  Ms. Corson has over 15 years of experience in historic preservation, planning and zoning, and project management and we are very excited for her to bring her knowledge and understanding to our organization.  Outside of work she enjoys experimenting in the kitchen, working on her golf game, and collecting fabric for her various clothing and quilting projects.

If you haven’t had the chance to meet Dana yet, we hope you’ll reach out to get to know her soon.

Welcome, Dana!
