Hosting an event in a discipline you are not too familiar with can be daunting. What topic do you choose, who can you find to speak, what if someone asks a question after the event and you don’t know the answer? The Preservation Week website is here to help!

Join Donia Conn for tips on how to host an event, find a speaker, and use the Preservation Week website to its fullest.

We thank Acme-HF Group and George Blood, L.P. for sponsoring this webinar to celebrate Preservation Week.
