Go Beyond Boundaries at the National Preservation Conference with LA/CES credits

Activists in allied fields of architecture, green building, landscape architecture, planning, and preservation spend lots of time talking about sustainable design, neighborhood revitalization, and sound transportation investments – just not always at the same time or in the same place.  Beyond Boundaries the National Preservation Conference in Spokane Washington, October 31- November 3 is just the place to make that happen.

Some 100 interdisciplinary educational sessions, field sessions, affinity sessions and special events are designed to attract a wide array of design professionals who can secure continuing educational credits while at the same time starting and continuing a conversation across disciplines.  For American Society of Landscape Architecture members alone the conference offers the opportunity to earn up to 48 credits .   These are joined by similar opportunities for architects, planners and those seeking US Green Building Council credits.

Here are a few highlights:
