One of the most effective ways of sharing information with Congress is through direct meetings, and Advocacy Week is our annual opportunity to have a mass impact on opinion leaders and policy makers. At a time when the Historic Tax Credit is threatened by tax reform efforts, and the Historic Preservation Fund continues to face difficult budgets, your voice is needed more than ever. Together with a cohesive message in support of preservation-positive legislation we can ensure a strong future for the federal historic preservation program.


Advocacy Week registration is now open! Register before Feb. 12th to lock in the best rates!
