Hip, Happening, Historic Preservation Gets Spotlight at 50 Years The National Alliance of Preservation Commissions (NAPC) published its spring members magazine focused on the National Historic Preservation Act at 50 years old. A member observer on the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, the NAPC is an expert voice for local preservation issues and serves a critical role in encouraging people to get involved in their communities to preserve their heritage. Make sure to read the article ACHP Director of the Office of Preservation Initiatives Ron Anzalone wrote in the Alliance Review detailing the NHPA's founding and what has transpired in the federal historic preservation program over the last 50 years. He also discusses what the next 50 years may look like and how the public can get involved. Be sure to plan to attend the NAPC's annual forum, July 27-31 in historic Mobile, Alabama.
