Just Announced: The American Historic Trades Summit


A Convening hosted by The Campaign for Historic Trades

The Campaign for Historic Trades is excited to announce the first American Historic Trades Summit in Providence, RI June 12-14, 2023. The Summit will help develop a network for historic trades training programs, creating a central source of knowledge and resources on how to start, maintain, and propel a training program. 

Participants will have the opportunity to share knowledge, pool resources, ensure consistent standards, and learn how to advocate for program support. Attendees will engage in informational sessions and networking opportunities that explore the past, present, and future of historic trades training in America. 

The convening will be of value to a wide audience, including: preservation organizations interested in creating, supporting, or fostering historic trades programs; organizations interested in supporting trades professionals in their communities; historic trades trainers and professionals; historic trades firms; government agencies focused on workforce development and trades training; state and national park preservationists, and more.
