Preservation Conversations

During the spring of 2020, how we operate and do our jobs changed drastically.  In an effort to continue our educational mission and provide information, connections and a communication platform to any and all who are interested, active or involved with preservation in Massachusetts, we created  a new opportunity called Preservation Conversations.  Each week PM will host a virtual meeting where participants can learn from PM's professional staff and guest contributors on a variety of preservation topics, issues and (most importantly) ask questions directly.
 

Our preliminary "conversations" have been successes and we will keep them going weekly for the foreseeable future.  Tune in each week via our GoTo Meeting site and remember to bring your questions and issues, or just grab a coffee and listen in.  Plus, all conversations will be recorded and hosted on our YouTube page and website for easy access after. 

So mark your calendars for Wednesday's from 10-11. We're excited to see where this new "conversation" will take us.
