Writing Statements of Significance

Join Karen Dearlove, Heritage BC's Capacity Planner and presenter, for a one hour webinar on developing Statements of Significance (SOS). This webinar will help participants develop the necessary documentation for identified sites on a Community Heritage Register.  

As an essential component of historic place record documentation, the SOS is a key planning tool to inform decision-making in the heritage conservation process. It provides guidance to property owners, architects, developers and others who are making an intervention to an historic place.

Gain an understanding of what an SOS is, how it can be used and what elements to include in a well-written document. This webinar will be especially useful for those who are applying to the 2014 Heritage Legacy Fund, as a compulsory element to the Heritage Conservation Program will be providing an SOS for the chosen site. 

Please note: One registration allows ALL staff members at one location to participate. Access to the archived recording is included.

**Once you register, please keep your registration link safe as this is unique to you**
