Past Conferences

Each year in May or June, hundreds of VAF members assemble somewhere on the continent for an annual conference. At least two days are devoted to touring the area to learn first-hand about its architectural heritage in a local or regional context. A juried paper session is also provided to give members a forum for their scholarship and field work. In addition, workshops, board and committee meetings, special events and excursions are scheduled to create an enjoyable and memorable event. Past meetings have been held through out North America. Heavily illustrated and details guide books and other publications from past conferences can be found here.
