Dear All:

The Mid-Atlantic Regional Center For the Humanities (MARCH) at Rutgers University-Camden is pleased to invite you to sign-up for INTRODUCTION TO THE NATIONAL REGISTER and IS IT COST EFFECTIVE? THE ECONOMICS OF HISTORIC PRESERVATION. These continuing education opportunities are supported by the New Jersey Historic Trust. Both classes count for AIA credits (for those who are interested), sponsored by Preservation New Jersey, and of course, credits toward MARCH's certification in historic preservation. Anyone interested in historic preservation is welcome to register. We hope you will join us!



**What is the National Register, and how do you get a historic building or other historic resource on the list? What tools do you need to draft a nomination? What role can you or your organization play in using the National Register as a tool for preservation? Once a building is on the list, what does that mean for its preservation, anyway? In this 5-week course, Glenn Ceponis, Principal Preservation Specialist for the New Jersey Historic Trust, will introduce participants to the National Register and the components required for a successful nomination to be placed on the register. Please note that this course does not provide you with time to draft a nomination, but it will provide you with the resources you would need to do so in the future!


WHEN: Tuesdays, 6:30pm-8:30pm, October 16-November 13, 2018


WHERE: Rutgers University-Camden, Camden, New Jersey

**We all know preserving historic buildings enhances the character of where we live and work, but how do we know when it’s worth the money? This workshop, led by Dorothy Guzzo, the Executive Director of the New Jersey Historic Trust, and Allen Kratz, Esq., a project manager at Rebuild By Design, will introduce participants to the economic value of historic preservation. As part of the workshop, you will gain hands-on experience evaluating the economic merits of potential projects using the concepts, measures, and tools real estate investors use to determine a preservation project’s cost effectiveness. Whether you are serving on a local historic preservation commission or considering a rehabilitation project of your own, by the conclusion of this workshop, you will have become familiar with economic factors to consider when making decisions about executing historic preservation projects you work on in the future.


WHEN: Saturday, October 27, 2018, 9am-3pm
