Preservation Conversations

In 2020, how we operated and did our jobs changed drastically. In an effort to continue our educational mission and provide an opportunity for connections, we created Preservation Conversations. Each week, PM hosted a virtual meeting where participants could learn from PM's professional staff and guest contributors on a variety of preservation topics and (most importantly) ask questions directly.

Our preliminary "conversations" were a success, and we were glad to bring them back for 2022. Tune in each month for a guest presentation or discussion on a preservation agenda item. Remember to bring your questions and topics of discussion, or just grab a coffee and listen in. All conversations will be recorded and hosted on our YouTube channel and website. 

We're excited to see where a new season of Preservation Conversations will take us!
