This year's gathering will feature the increasing relevant topic of preserving our recent architectural past. The setting in Albany, New York offers notable works that are representative of both historic and contemporary architecture. We're pleased to offer this juxtaposition with the Friday venues of the Annual Meeting and Symposium at The Egg, the reception at the New York State Museum; and a selection of three free Saturday tours.  
We are excited to announce that Michael Lynch will be this year's keynote speaker.  Michael Lynch is a restoration architect and preservation engineer with over four decades of experience, half of which has been in public service at the New York State Historic Preservation Office.  His APT credentials are impeccable, having co-founded the New York Chapter, served on the International Board for twelve years, including as Chair of the Publications and Conferences Committees, Vice President, and four years as President, and served on the Northeast Chapter Board to help organize the New York APTI conference in 2013.  Michael returned to the Capital District in April 2016 and currently serves as Director of the Division for Historic Preservation and the Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer.  In 1987 Michael coined the Phrase “Recent Past” for a paper he presented at the APTI conference in Vancouver, and it has remained a strong interest of his the past three decades.
