We are pleased to announce our chapter's collaboration with the Association for Preservation Technology International (APTI) to facilitate knowledge sharing and resources between chapters and APTI. With this partnership, this website will ultimately be used as a tool to streamline sharing industry and APTI news and events.

APT WGLC will continue to develop and improve this site so it can be as useful as possible to our members and friends. Please stand-by as we continue to import information, including photos from past events, and develop our members-only access.

    This conference will bring together both women and men across related sectors in the AEC industry, leading the way on diversity and inclusion issues. Come network with top professionals in the industry regarding the most pertinent developments in AEC, and discuss the challenges of diversity in a traditionally male-dominated sector. Here we will cover strategies for leveraging both professional development resources in addition to technical advances in AEC to invoke change for diversity and inclusion. This event will ensure both women and men are prepared in the changing environment, and leave with the tools necessary to both continue the gender conversation in a solution-focused way, and utilize new developments and trends within AEC to help advance in this career despite any roadblocks.
