The SAH Heritage Conservation Committee roundtable will provide conference attendees with an opportunity to discuss recent preservation issues. The session will include a recap of the advocacy efforts of the committee over the last year, and will lead to an open conversation of recent preservation issues and controversies. Issues may include the preservation of modern and postmodern resources, the impacts of climate change upon historic resources, the challenge of underutilized and abandoned places of worship, recent demolitions of historic high-rise building to allow for replacement by even taller buildings, and the removal of Confederate monuments from public spaces in the American south.
