    International Preservation Trades Workshop
    October 26-28, 2018
    Historic Preservation Training Center
    Frederick, Maryland

    Join us once again as we return to Frederick and the National Park Service’s Historic Preservation Training Center for the 22nd International Preservation Trades Workshop.  It is shaping up to be a great workshop, with the usual variety of demonstrators.  As usual there will be the main dinner and auction to cap off the event.  We have shortened the Workshop to two days this year, to allow for a youth day on Thursday and a community day on Sunday.  The Misia Leonard Scholarship is available for Students wishing to attend, so apply early!  We are planning several workshops ahead of the main event, including gravestone preservation, masonry preservation and window restoration.  We are honored that HPTC has once again opened their doors to us, and brought us home, as it were.  This year honor the legacy of Chris Robinson, who encouraged us all to “Go Big or Go Home”

    Visit their website for more information and to register!

    No tricks, just a treat. Join us for our quarterly lecture series, Preservation Pioneers, as we present Baird Smith, FAIA, FAPT. Mr. Smith retired in 2015 from the DC office of Quinn Evans Architects where he was a Principal and Director of Preservation. His broad experience includes expertise in many technical aspects of preservation such as brick and stone deterioration and restoration as well as energy conservation in historic buildings. In his retirement, Baird is pursuing his research interest in mid-Atlantic historic church design and construction. 

    Mr. Smith was inducted as a Fellow of the Association for Preservation Technology in 2001 and as a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects in 2008. He holds degrees in architecture and American Studies and a certificate in Conservation Studies. He has worked on numerous National Historic Landmark buildings as well as a plethora of structures listed in the National Register. Regional projects include the exterior restoration of Healy Hall (Georgetown University) and the interior repairs to the Octagon House. His presentation will focus on how preservation changed over the course of his career and what he thinks the future will hold for the field. Please join us for what is sure to be an enlightening evening.

    If you know a late-career preservation professional who may be willing to speak as part of our Preservation Pioneers lecture series, please email and put "Preservation Pioneers" in the subject line.


    Parking in the area is limited, but the Foggy Bottom Metro Station is just a few blocks away! Follow the map and look for the signs once you're in the building. Light refreshments will be provided after the lecture. No AIA credits are being offered for this lecture.

    On Saturday, November 3,  APT DC and the APT-Delaware Valley Chapters will be co-sponsoring a half-day workshop focused on the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs a.k.a. “drones”) for heritage documentation and investigation. Presenters will include Global Air Media of Baltimore, Vertical Access of NY & DC, and Historic Building Architects of Trenton, NJ.

    Attendees will gain insights into uses of UAVs including high-resolution photography, aerial mapping, photogrammetric survey drawings, augmented visualizations, live-feed and recorded video streams, infrared thermography, and others. 

    We will begin with a live, outdoor UAV demonstration (weather permitting) followed by an indoor round table presentation and panel discussion. Refreshments, including a boxed lunch, will be provided.

    Continuing education credits will also be offered.

    Sponsorship of this event is available for $75. If your company or organization would like to sponsor this workshop please email us at
