Welcome to the Fall 2015 issue of the Vernacular Architecture Newsletter! This issue is packed with information—from announcements about conferences—especially the 2016 VAF conference in Durham, North Carolina—to calls for papers, and news about members. But I want to particularly draw your attention to the dialogue that has been started around the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act on the President's Blog. This is a great chance for members to comment and discuss across space and time, until we all get another chance to meet in person in Durham. Enjoy!
