About This Webinar

As a historic preservation commissioner, you may find yourself getting bogged down in the day-to-day administration of your local ordinance and forget that one of your major responsibilities is to be an effective spokesperson for historic preservation in your community. Led by a panel of CAMP Trainers spanning the coasts, this webinar will guide you in communicating effectively with a wide range of audiences, explaining the benefits of historic preservation and the role of the commission. Presenters will offer creative suggestions for promoting historic preservation, reaching diverse communities, listening to constituents and planning for the future.
