National Trust for Historic Preservation national conference RFQ - 2012

[Source: Barbara Stocklin, Phoenix Historic Preservation Office] -- HP staff coordinated with representatives from the Greater Phoenix Visitor and Convention Bureau, Arizona Preservation Foundation, and State Historic Preservation Office to respond to a RFP from the National Trust for Historic Preservation for Phoenix to host the 2012 National Preservation Conference. Staff identified possible historic venues for events and tours, summarized local historic preservation accomplishments, and provided other supporting materials. The conference is very prestigious, would place Phoenix in a national spotlight for historic preservation, and would bring nearly 2,500 attendees to Phoenix in our centennial year.
