Educational Programs & Webinars


Preservation Delaware is seeking presentations, panelists, and speakers for our webinar series and the Annual Conference held each October. Presentations and talks may be on on a range of topics related to historic preservation, primarily focusing on topics in Delaware and the Mid-Atlantic region, but also including more general topics relevant to our region or the field of historic preservation. Presentations and talks can be between 20-40 minutes in length, by an individual or a panel. The annual conference welcomes both virtual and in-person sessions.
