The SEJ Commission on Archives and History will present its bi-annual Heritage Preservation Workshop on November 20-21 at the newly renovated Terrace Hotel at Lake Junaluska. Practical, hands-on sessions will address the issue of disaster response as it relates to the care of historic records and artifacts in the local church. Disasters include major events such as fires, tornadoes, and hurricanes, as well as broken water pipes and vandalism. Participants will begin to construct a disaster response plan for their church, learn how to recover damaged papers and photographs, and much more.

The event begins on Friday evening with an address by keynote speaker the Rev. Alfred T. Day III, General Secretary of the General Commission on Archives and History for The United Methodist Church. On Saturday evening, attendees are invited to tour the World Methodist Museum located on the grounds of Lake Junaluska.

Due to the hands-on nature of the workshops, registration is limited to 30 participants. Act now if you wish to attend!
