Upcoming Historic Preservation Opportunities at MARCH - Fall 2018
Exciting Upcoming Historic Preservation Opportunities at MARCH!
The beginning of October brings crisp weather, falling leaves, and two more Historic Preservation opportunities from the Continuing Education program at Rutgers-Camden, offered by MARCH and co-sponsored by the New Jersey Historic Trust.
October 16 marks the start of a 5-week introductory course on the National Register. Glenn Ceponis, the Principal Preservation Specialist for the New Jersey Historic Trust, will instruct and equip participants with the necessary tools to nominate a historic resource to the Register. Additionally, a one-day workshop will be held on October 27, at which Dorothy Guzzo, the Executive Director of the New Jersey Historic Trust, and Allen Kratz, a project manager at Rebuild by Design, will discuss the economic value of historic preservation.
Registration for these opportunities, as well as additional information on the Fall 2018 Course Offerings, can be found on our website. Click the “REGISTER” link at the bottom of each course description to enroll. Anyone with an interest in historic preservation may register - no previous experience in the field is necessary.
An Introduction to the National Register 5-week course: October 16 to November 13, Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 pm
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!
Is It Cost Effective? The Economics of Historic Preservation 1-day workshop: Saturday, October 27, 2018, 9:00 am - 3:00 pm 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. 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.
