The State Historic Preservation Division  will  conduct  a one day Conference with SHPD staff on Friday  April  8, 2016.

SHPD will work to identify the critical issues at SHPD and how to create an effective work environment. SHPD’s four branches, History and Culture, Archaeology , Architecture, and Administration work closely with the community to preserve and sustain the historical sites and culture. This Conference will help SHPD comply with its mission statement “to preserve and sustain reminders of earlier times which link the past to the present.” Historic Preservation is  partial funded by Federal Funds. Inrecent years SHPD has been getting through the audit  conducted by National Park Service. The Conference will have discussions on how to improve SHPD and how to work effectively together as a team. SHPD will conduct training by staff and team building  activities . SHPD will also be bringing  in a speaker who will focus on team  building.

Should you have any questions regarding the matter please contact Mr. Alan Downer, State Historic  Preservation  Division  Administrator,  at 692-8040.
